MINISTRY IN THE MARGINS

Inspired by Christ and Impelled by Love, and at the behest of His Excellency Bishop George Mamalassery of Tura Diocese, the Claretians first set foot on the North Eastern soil on June 22, 1984. In order to familiarize with the Reality of the Northeast and the Mode of Missionary Response, the first group of Claretians worked with the diocesan priests of Tura for a period of 5 years, before taking up own missions. During this period they learned the local language, customs and needs of the people for an effective and contextualized mission and formation. The first house opened in the North East was the study house at Mawlai, Shillong, in 1986, for the contextualized formation of the Claretian scholastics.

The first Mission to be opened was the All Saints Mission at Rongara in 1989. Within six months came the next:  St Claret Mission in Amapati. Both Rongara and Ampati are in the Diocese of Tura in Meghalaya.  Then followed several missions: the Presentation Mission at Nonghyllam in 1992, the Mary Queen of Holy Rosary Mission at Dangar Balat in 1993, and St Francis Xavier Mission in Mawsynram in 1993 were the first Claretian centers in the Diocese of Shillong.

St. Claret Mission, Boasimla

St. Claret Mission at Boasimla was the first venture of Claretian Missionaries into the State of Arunachal Pradesh, the “land of the rising sun.” Arunachal Pradesh is the northeasternmost State in the Indian Union, and is located in the Himalayan foothills. It is a tribal state with around 25 major tribes and many more minor tribes. Anyone from outside the State requires an “Inner Line Permit” (ILP) to enter the State.

Saint Claret College, Ziro

On request from the Apatani tribe of Ziro Valley, Claretian Missionaries opened SCCZ as the second private undergraduate school in the State, which, until then, had only seven government-run UG schools. SCCZ is recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC) and permanently affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University, Itanagar.  In 2014, SCCZ became the first private undergraduate school to be accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore. As on January 1, 2016, there are over 807 students under three streams, with 25 teaching faculty and 19 administrative and supportive staff.

Casa Claret, Chimpu

In 2013, the diocese of Itanagar erected a new parish at Chimpu – Divine Mercy Church – and entrusted it to the Claretians on a permanent basis. Under the parish, there are four villages which are 40 to 120 kilometers away from the Center. The  Chimpu Mission serves around 170 families and 976 catholics.  Casa Claret, the Claretian residence and parish rectory, was blessed and inaugurated in May 2014.
