Pakistan’s latest church is its largest
St. Peter’s in Karachi has become a symbol of resilience over state discrimination and extremist violence.

St. Peter’s is now the country’s largest and for many of the 5,000 worshippers who attend services there, the church has become a symbol of resilience over state discrimination and extremist violence.
