Guwahati, Feb. 19. The Salesian Province of Guwahati began its 18th Provincial Chapter on 18th February, at Don Bosco Institute, Guwahati.
The Chapter began with a prayer song titled ''Call to Holiness'' and a short prayer by Fr. P J Thomas. Fr. Johnson Parackal, the Chapter Moderator introduced the theme of the chapter highlighting the following points:
           - Call to holiness
           - Radical witness to the Gospel
           - Educating the Young in Love
There were officially 48 members present in this chapter.

The chapter members viewed a video clip, explaining the Strenna of the Salesian Congregation by Fr. Rector Major, where he highlighted the role Indian Salesians, the role of parents in educating the young and especially our presence in the lives of the young. After the 20 mts of video, there was a spontaneous sharing about Salesian life by some confreres.

During the first session of the chapter the elderly confreres were honored with Assamese Gamocha.

One of the highlights of the first day of the chapter was a well preached recollection talk by Fr. Jose Chunkapura on ''Witnesses to the Radical Approach of the Gospel'' and ''The need for a change in Mindset and Practice.'' Fr. Jose highlighted the core aspect of the chapter by asking a fundamental question, ''What do we really want?'' During the recollection talk, he also spoke about the guiding purpose and the inner objective behind this chapter theme. He concluded by saying, ''Let our province ride on in triumph for the cause of truth, justice and right''

After the recollection and benediction, we gathered around Fr. Provincial to wish him a Happy Birthday.
