Kolkata, Jun. 25. The FMA Province of Mary Help of Christians, Kolkata, marked a new beginning on June 24, 2021, with its seventh Provincial, Sr. Leelamma Palliparambil, taking charge. The installation ceremony took place in the provincial house chapel, Dum Dum, amid the Provincial Council members. Kolkata Salesian provincial Father Joseph Pauria presided over the solemn Holy Eucharist with the parish priest of St. Patrick's Church, Dum Dum, and other Salesians.
During the Holy Eucharist, the outgoing provincial Sr. Rose Ezarath read the Decree of Appointment by Mother General Sr. Yvone Reungoat and the General Council. The celebrant in his homily highlighted the two Mornesian symbols: 'the window of Valponasca' and 'the well of Mornese,' suggesting the Eucharistic piety and the spirit that pervaded in Mornese and which spread across the world.

The installation programme had two parts: thanksgiving to the outgoing provincial and handing over the Province of Kolkata to the new Provincial. Sr. Stella, the superior of the Provincial house at Dum Dum, thanked Sr. Rose Ezarath for her dynamic governance and animation of the sisters during her term of office. Sr Stella handed over to the new provincial a symbolic representation of the tree of Kolkata province with the names of the six past provincials and the present 25 communities with 151 sisters spread across the seven states of India and Nepal. Only a few sisters from the neighbouring communities could attend the event due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
