St. Francis Church, Friary, School and Boarding, Matia-Majerburi, Assam

 This is a new Friary built recently.....there are boarders about 40 of them who also stay in one block of the friary.....

 Two Friars......Kuriakose and Sandeep.......they look after the parish, boarding and the school....also there are sisters who help them....

 I was given a warm welcome by Br. Kuriakose and the children....



 The boarders singing a welcome song......
 The school and the boarding for the girls


 These girls come from very far off villages.....most of them are Catholics and Hindus....making their future bright.....very good in studies....Friars and sisters do their best.....You can pray for them

 The Assamese are fair skin......

 The festal Mass....attended by many parishioners....they have 7 sub stations and they all come to Main Church for the feast...
 Welcome Liturgy dance by the children

 The music is in their system and blood....


 The School Children.,,,,,well dressed up...uniform is a must here in India.....
