50 Students enrolled at the National Catechist Training Centre

In 1951 Bishop Chialeo, then the Bishop of Multan decided to commence a one-year training program to train Catechists for the diocese of Multan. He began the program in Khushpur, Diocese of Faisalabad (Lyallpur at that time). This one-year program started on the May 17th, 1952 under the guidance of Rev. Fr. Philip (parish priest). Fr. Philip was the 1st in charge of the under-training Catechist.

Since then, 958 young men have gone through the training programme. Some of them attended the one-year course, some two, and most of them attended the three years program. The present program is designed for three years which begins on the 1st week of September and ends on the 1st week of June and goes on for three years simultaneously. At present there are 50 students who are under training, from six dioceses of Pakistan. Namely there are 20 first year's students, 15 second year's students and 15 third year students.
