EDITOR’S ROOM-The Call to Fulfilment
These days I had been on a journey to the north eastern parts of India and had the privilege of witnessing the great reputation, the church has earned in this region especially through the Salesians of Don Bosco. Also I had the opportunity to live with a very young MCBS priest in a village in Arunachal Pradesh where the station Church is only recently elevated as a Parish. We the visitors, (myself and a colleague of mine) stayed at a thatched roof building, along with the young priest and his assistant.
The Parish comprises of a wide area, the nearest station is 5 kilometres close and the farthest one is 32 kilometres away. The priests make sure that at least once in a month, the Holy Eucharist is celebrated in all 16 station churches which belong to the Parish.
