10th July, Wathin, Khonsa: It was the long cherished dream of the Catholics of Wathin village to have pukka Church in their village.

The people in Wathin village had been using a bamboo structure as Church ever since they became Catholics in 2001. It had dilapidated over the years and the people had longed to have a  new pukka Church. They had approached the bishop for help. Bishop asked  Fr. P.T. George, the Parish Priest of Khonsa to take the initiative to build a Church in the village.

With the help from our kind donors and from the local help a pukka Church became a reality for the people here. It was blessed by Bishop George and inaugurated by MLA Wangkhi Lowang on 26 May 2013. The Catechist, Mr. Telem Tesia, and the other church committee members had taken much interest and pain to realize their dream of having this Church.God bless the  kind donors and the local faithful for their generosity and support in making this Church a reality.
