Completed and available the CCC in Urdu in Pakistan

Catholic Church in Pakistan has completed the translation of the Catechism of the Catholic Church in Urdu after 13 years of intense work.  The book has been approved by the Holy See and has been published in Pakistan.  This was reported by Fr. Robert MacCulloch a missionary in Pakistan for 34 years who expressed joy having completed the work during this year of Mercy. 

The first edition has been made available to all catholic dioceses and will be useful for catechesis at all levels for children, young people and adults says Fr. Robert who was also involved in the work with Emmanuel Neno, Secretary of the Bishops’ Commission for Catechesis.

Archbishop Sebastian Shaw of Lahore and head of the Pakistani Bishops’ Commission for Catechesis  who followed its completion and publication thanks the Italian Catholic Bishops’ conference and the International Department of Aid to the Church in Need Foundation for their financial support.  The Catechism, he concludes, “is useful for growing in holiness and in this Jubilee Year it is truly a Work of Mercy for the Catholic Church in Pakistan”.
