House of Guwahati


Bishop Thomas Menamparampil was transferred from Dibrugarh and made Archbishop of Guwahati. It was at his insistence that the Paulines opened their second house in North east India at Guwahati, the gateway to all the seven north-eastern states.

St Pauls house in Guwahati, Assam, is named Subha Sandesh Prasarani (centre for spreading the good message). Fr Vincent Carmelbhavan pioneered the project here, and the community was erected on 22 October 2006.43 Juniors belonging to this community stay in the Salesian Seminary in Shillong, Meghalaya state, and attend classes there.

Aspirants from North-East India are trained in this house for two years. The community has a diffusion centre in the house and conducts bookexhibitions. The diffusion centre caters to the needs of several states in North-East India. 

Brother JesudasAmritham has succeeded in instituting “Peace Clubs” in many schools in the area for the education of school children in communal harmony and peace in society. The civil authorities are supportive of this initiative, and the children are enthusiastic about it.

Thoughts

 16/11/2018 The Acts of the Apostles and the Epistles of St Paul are the teachings of Jesus lived by the disciples, exposed, adapted to the needs of the faithful, from those to whom Jesus entrusted the care of continuing His work: there is nothing more touching, more effective than this first commentary of the Gospel (ACV, 67).
