August 25th 2018 was a long awaited day for our province and specially for our community at Dadenggre as we blessed and inaugurated the new house building in Dadenggre.
The construction of our house at Dadenggre began on 4th January 2017 with the blessing of the site by Rt. Rev. Andrew R. Marak of Tura diocese and laying of the foundation by Sr Jancy Francis SMI Provincial Superior of Guwahati province.
The newly built house-cum boarding was inaugurated and blessed on 25th August, 2018 on the beautiful feast day of our beloved Father Bishop. Rt. Rev. Andrew R. Marak, Bishop of Tura, fifteen priests, our dear Sr Dina Vellamaruthumkal superior general, Srs Ranjitham and Divya general councilors, Sr Daisy Andrade provincial superior of Delhi province, Sr Fancy Francis provincial superior of Guwahati province and her councilors, our sisters from different communities, sisters of other religious congregations from the nearby missions, faithful and the boarding children gathered in front of the new building to witness the historical moment. Sr Dina formally inaugurated the house by cutting ribbon and the Bishop, Rev. Fr. C.J. Jose and Rev. Fr Alex blessed the house. The concelebrated Holy Eucharist was officiated by Rt. Rev. Bishop Andrew R. Marak followed by a short felicitation ceremony and cultural programme by our boarders. Speaking on the occasion, the bishop thanked us for the successful completion of the work in brisk pace and further noted that the new facility for the boarders on our second floor is a big boon to girls coming from rural areas to facilitate their education. The SDOs of Dadenggre Sub Division both the former and present one who were among the distinguished invitees also highly appreciated the service we render to the people of the locality. They stated that education is the key to success and all round development of a society, and they lauded the ministries rendered by the Catholic Church over the place. Our dreams come true, now that we can provide better accommodation to our girl children who come to attend school from far flung villages.
