India: Udaipur Diocese digitalizes pastoral ministry

Priests of Udaipur Diocese

In a remarkable display of technological integration within the Catholic community, 60 priests of the Diocese of Udaipur in the western Indian state of Rajasthan have enthusiastically adopted the Catholic Connect App.

The Conference of Catholic Bishops of India (CCBI) launched the app to strengthen ties within the global Catholic community while also offering several necessary services.

The Catholic Connect App, which has acquired widespread acclaim for its user-friendly interface and comprehensive features, serves as a valuable tool for the faithful, offering services that enhance their spiritual journey and connection with the Church.

Expressing his enthusiasm for the local churches, Father Arvind remarked, “I am enamoured of the news of the local churches,” highlighting the app's capacity to keep users informed about developments within their respective local communities.

Msgr. George, the Vicar General of Udaipur, shared his positive experience, stating, “The App helps me prepare for the Holy Mass every day. I read the daily readings and reflections shared through the App.”

This underscores the app's role in assisting clergy members in their spiritual preparations and daily rituals.

Divine Word Bishop Devprasad John Ganawa, offering his insights on the Catholic Connect App, stated, “The Catholic Connect is the hyphen for us to get connected to God, Church, and each other.”

His words underscore the app’s overarching goal of fostering connectivity within the Catholic community, facilitating a deeper connection with spirituality, the Church, and fellow believers.

The widespread adoption of the Catholic Connect App by the Udaipur priests is a testament to its efficacy in meeting the diverse needs of the clergy and the Catholic community at large.

As technology continues to play a vital role in religious practices, the app stands out as a valuable resource for enhancing the spiritual journey of believers worldwide.


Radio Veritas Asia (RVA), a media platform of the Catholic Church, aims to share Christ. RVA started in 1969 as a continental Catholic radio station to serve Asian countries in their respective local language, thus earning the tag “the Voice of Asian Christianity.”  Responding to the emerging context, RVA embraced media platforms to connect with the global Asian audience via its 21 language websites and various social media platforms.
