6th July, Ngissa: We can see the joy on every face in Ngissa Village on 11th June, 2013, as Bishop George blessed and inaugurated the new Convent of the Sisters of the Holy Spirit, in the presence of a large of a large number of faithful and Fathers and Sisters.
The Convent, the work of which was going on for a long time, finally became a reality for the Sisters, who were living in a Bamboo house with thatched roof.
The Convent will serve the Sisters as their residence, hostel for the girls and as a dispensary. It will be a big blessing to the people in and around the place.
The blessing brought so many Priests and Religious from all over the Diocese to Ngissa. The large number of the faithful gathered for the blessing made the occasion more solemn.
Bishop George, speaking on the occasion said, “It is so beautiful to see a beautiful house as this in a remote place like Ngissa. But the real beauty of the place will depend upon the purpose this house is used for. May this place be a source of many people around this area.”
Sr. Daya, who was overseeing the construction, can now take a big sigh of relief as the construction is over.
The Convent in Ngissa, a place bordering Burma and famous for its incessant rain, took nearly three years to be completed.
