Shillong, Sep. 4. A commemorative volume of edited works on the life of late Archbishop Dominic Jala was released on 03 September 2020 by Shillong [INS] Salesian Provincial Father Paul Olphindro Lyngkot at Don Bosco Provincial House, Mawlai.
In a short function, that started with a prayer led by ViceProvincial Father John Zosiama, Brother M. A. Abraham, co-editor with Father Jose Varickasseril,  briefly described ''An Affable Pastor.'' Brother Abraham stated ''the sole intention of publishing this commemorative volume is to keep alive the memory of late Archbishop Jala who was very versatile and a pastor who was very human.''

The volume is made up of a wide range of articles comprising theological, philosophical, biblical, canonical, kerygmatic, catechetical, and liturgical themes. The 'In Memoriam' section contains inspiring impressions about the Late Archbishop.

Father Lyngkot commended the work of the two editors and called the book a 'very special book'. He said, ''the book opens the door for all those who knew Archbishop Dominic Jala in order to reflect more deeply about his life.'' He also recalled that the book gets its name from the affability of the dad of late Archbishop Jala, which the son assuredly imbibed.
