TIDINGS FROM ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI MISSION CENTER, NONGDAM, MANIPUR, INDIA
St. Francis of Assisi Mission center was started in the year 2016 in the month of February. On this same day mission center was opened and nursery Classes were begun in a bamboo shed. The two Friars (Fr. Mathias Dias and Fr. James Furtado) stayed at Catechist quarter for two years with minimum necessities. The new building work started in the year 2017 and completed in the year 2019. In 2020 schooling was begun at new school building but due to Corona it was shut. In 2020 onwards the friars began to stay in the new building. At present school is having the strength of 350 students up to class 9. There is also a hostel both for girls and boys with 35 students. The Catholic community numbers 40 families the friars help them to grow spiritually. The long awaited dream of having vehicle was fulfilled through the kind help of Provincial Minister, Rev. Fr.
