Though seemingly unremarkable, the village of Khushpur is sometimes described as Pakistan's Vatican. It is the heart of the Catholic Church in Pakistan: this one parish has produced two bishops, over 35 priests, and hundreds of brothers and sisters. The National Formation Center for Catechists is also in Khushpur; catechists from all over the country are trained there.

Being a woman, I face many hurdles and challenges while on the job; it is hard to provide necessities for the family."
