A short history:- Shamgarh is about 250 km away from the diocesan headquarters and is in the district of Mandsaur. Because of the distance factor, even when this area was part of the Indore Diocese, much was not done. However, because of some Catholics working in the Railway here in the year 2000, the Diocese of Indore appointed a resident priest for Shamgarh and parish and school were started.
