Erus Kishor Tirkey 07Our confreres Didier Lemaire and Jean-Paul Cirhakarhula went to India with five Christians of Orange Farm in South Africa at the occasion of the ordination of Erus Kishor Tirkey in his home village, Kansabel, in the Diocese of Jashpur, in Chattisgarh State. Erus did his stage in Orange Farm.
