Pakistan: Eucharistic congress counters conversions to Protestantism

July 22, 2016

An Islamabad parish has hosted a two-day Eucharistic congress, described by AsiaNews as Pakistan’s first.

1,500 mostly young people were in attendance at the congress, and two bishops celebrated Masses.

“Protestant pastors are attracting many Catholics,” said Father Yousaf Amanat, pastor of Our Lady of Fatima church. “We hope to counter this trend through greater awareness.”
