New Motorbike for Priest in Nepal

Fr. Silas Bogati, Vicar General of the Apostolic Vicariate of Nepal, is

shown here with his new motorbike, purchased by Bishop Salpointe Council
#4584 (Sierra Vista, AZ).

               During one of his bi-annual visits to the Diocese of Tucson, to raise funds
for the Church in Nepal, Fr. Silas became a member of Council #5133 (Tucson
AZ), and, this last February, a member of the 4th Degree! During his fund
raising mission in Sierra Vista AZ, he shared with his Brother Knights of
Council #4584, that his 25-year-old motorbike - his chief means for
traveling around to the various missions and parishes scattered throughout
this predominately Hindu nation - had 'succumbed' to old age and a lack of
vintage replacement parts. The Council made this a special fund-raising
effort and were able to send Fr. Silas back to Nepal with sufficient funds
to purchase his new "ride". Fr. Silas is the first - and at this time - only
Nepalese Knight of Columbus!
