Sabarkatha Mission Golden Jubilee Celebration

Sabarkatha Mission Golden Jubilee Celebration
Fifty years of development of the Sabarkantha region is being celebrated this year.
The celebrations were in purely Indian and Tribal style.
Even the Bishops wear shawls for mass , not the catholic traditional vestments.
Those in other parts of the world may find this as an example of indigenization or inculturation in Liturgy different from their experience.
