The Journey of the IMS Pioneers began by a small but a giant
prophetic step taken by Rev. Fr. Gasper A. Pinto on 3rd November
1941 in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, INDIA. Varanasi, a sacred city
of India, attracts millions of pilgrims every year for spiritual
realization and enlightenment.
For the Church in India his arrival in the city of religion and
spirituality, light and wisdom, was a realization of her missionary
dream with a mission of dialogue and integration of the spiritual
and cultural heritage of India and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
