History of St. Joseph's Church
 
The History of St.Joseph's Church, Sagar  goes back to 1892 when the poor but generous faithful pooled all their resources under the leadership of Rev. Fr. D.F. Laurent and constructed a small church or worship. The original church building was a small structure with narrow verandahs on both sides and it could accommodate only 200 people. The old church was subsequently modified by incorporating the verandahs in the naive.
       
Aspiration

Having withstood 120 monsoons this church is now in dilapidated condition. The original mud walls at the front and rear side of the church could give in at any moment .During the monsoon the parishioners are put into great hardships as there is leakage all around.
 
The catholic population of Sagar has grown by ten times in these years. Presently there are 630 catholic families residing in parish and the catholic population is 3000. Majority of the people have to stand outside the church especially on Sundays and feast days. Hence it has been the deepest aspiration of the people of Sagar to have a spacious house of god where they can gather as one family around the altar.

The Lord will bless your generosity abundantly.
 
Once again, we request you to support us in this noble venture and fulfill the deep aspiration of the faithful at Sagar. The names of donors who contribute Rs.1,00,000 and above will be inscribed on granite at the entrance of the church.
