St. Francis of Assisi Church, Mronggre (2002 – Tura Diocese, Meghalaya)

His Lordship George Mamalassery encouraged us to continue our service in Tura Diocese after handing over ChimaTmpel Mission back to the Diocese where we rendered five years of service from 1999 – 2004. As a result Br. Kuriakose Kattoopara and a team of brothers visited Mronggre, an underdeveloped and remote village and the Tikrikilla parish, for a few times to see the possibility of opening a new parish. Later Fr. Renny Vehyappallil stayed with Fr. John Bosco in Thikkrikilla Parish and from 17 September 2002 at Mronggre to make the immediate preparation to start the parish. As a result on 22nd January 2003 St. Francis of Assisi Parish at Mronggre was erected and Br. Renny Velayappallil was appointed the first Parish priest and Br. Saji Olickathottiyil the assistant Parish Priest. The School and Friary was blessed in the year 2007 and the new parish church in the year 2011.
