Guwahati, Jun. 17. Shillong, June 17: The Holy Cross Fathers of the Parish of Umkiang, together with the Sisters, school children, and the general public gathered in the School compound to welcome the pilgrim relic of St. John Bosco, which is on a 131 nation tour of the five continents amidst great rejoicing and celebration.
The pilgrim casket was on its way back from Agartala in Tripura, on 17th June 2011. As the convoy approached the township of Umkiang, the general public and the school children all in uniform were already lined up both sides of the road to welcome Don Bosco into their midst as if they had been waiting for his arrival for so long. The wonderful way the children welcomed Don Bosco and prayed for his intercession showed the love they have for this great saint of youth whose sons brought the light of faith into their lives.
''My grand father received baptism from Fr. Guidotto'' said Albinus, ''since then the whole family remained faithful to the catholic faith''.
Umkiang belonged to the parish of Khliehriat,which is run by the Salesians of Don Bosco but was handed over to the Holy Cross Fathers in 2000. The school, convent and the parish continues to flourish under the care of the Holy Cross Fathers.
