Starts and Ends at the Same Place

“Be cheerful, but let your joy be genuine, overflowing from a clear conscience.”

Dimapur: On 31st January, Friday, the Provincial House Community, Dimapur solemnly celebrated the feast of St. John Bosco, father and founder of the society of St. Francis de Sales. The celebration commenced with the Eucharistic banquet in the residential auditorium at 6:00 pm. It was well attended by about 140 people of religious sisters from different neighbouring communities, the members of the Salesian family and few lay collaborators. The Holy Eucharist was presided over by Rev. Fr. Maria Arokiam Kanaga, the Regional Councillor for South Asia. Brothers of Salesian college animated the liturgical celebration. The programme was shortened without any felicitation functions due to the sad demise of Fr. PK Mathew on 30th January, 2020, a day before the celebration.

The Eucharistic celebration was ensued by a fellowship meal for all the members present for the feast. The celebration of the founder’s feast was combined with the thanksgiving programme for Fr. Maria Arokiam who is completing his term as the Regional Councillor for South Asia.

It is to be noted that Fr. Maria Arokiam Kanaga began his extraordinary visitation with the province of Dimapur, 12 years back. And today he visited the province of Dimapur for the last time as the Regional Councillor for South Asia as he is laying down the office during the General Chapter 28 which is due in the month of February 2020.
