Catholic Church, Mariampur, (1995 – Guwahati Archdiocese)

St. Francis of Assisi Parish Mariampur is one of the most vibrant Garo Catholic communities under the Archdiocese of Guwahati. On 2nd December 1994, Br. Joseph Zacharias and Br. Bastin Joseph Karackkat started to stay in an existing hostel in the village of MAriampur, a sub-centre under Damra Parish. On 5th February 1995, the parish of Mariampur was officially handed over to us. Br. Joseph Zacharias was the parish priest and Br. Bastin Karakkat was the assistant parish priest. On 9 April 1995 the Parish house was blessed. His Grace Thomas Menamparmbil, Archbishop of Guwahati, blessed the newly constructed Parish Church on 30th January 1997, and the Parish had a steady and holistic growth. Consequently, on 25th January 2007, Christ the King Parish was erected at Mallangkona, bifurcating the Mariampur parish. The newly constructed friary was blessed in 2018.
