All Catholic infrastructure in the country was destroyed by Soviet revolutionaries in the 1920s.[1] In 1997 a request was made to recognize the local Catholic community, but was refused since the local church was not headed by a Turkmen.[1] As of 2010, the church had approximately 100 members and 30 catechumens.[1] In July 2010, the Catholic Mission received official government recognition.[1] Plans are underway to ask permission to build a Catholic church, and to reclaim a Catholic Armenian church in Turkmenbasy that still stands in the west of the country, as well as a church building in Sendar.[1] There are currently two priests, a deacon serving the Catholic population.[1] Mass is celebrated at the Papal embassy in the capital and at parishioners homes.[2]
