Celebration of Sacraments at Chowkham

6th July, Chowkham: The summer vacation was spent very meaningfully this  year at St. Alphonsa School, Chowkham.

The FCC Sisters in Chowkham with the help of the Fathers in Namsai conducted Catechism classes for two weeks, in preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism, First Holy Communion and Marriage Rectification. It was lead by Rev. Sr. Roshni F.C.C.

About twenty people from around Chowkham attended the classes and were prepared for receiving the Saraments. On 10th May 2013, thirteen people were baptized and seven received Holy Communion and two marriages were blessed by Rev.Fr. John Doley.

The classes and the result of such faith forming classes have  strengthened the people spiritually.

“We do not know much about our Faith. These classes have helped us learn a lot about our Faith. This is very useful as we are in the Year of Faith”, said one of the participants, while thanking the Fathers and Sisters for organizing this programme.
