Sacred Heart Convent for the Hospital Community Blessed at Injan
A Convent for the Sacred Heart Sisters who will be taking care of the near-complete Krick and Bourry Hospital at Injan was blessed and inaugurated on 14 April 2016 by Mrs. Longri, Zilla Parishad Member, Khrsang.
This is a landmark event in the history of the Diocese of Miao as the hospital which has been under construction for the last few years is nearing completion. The first step towards this is a moving in of a group of Sacred Heart Sisters from Pala Province. The new convent for the hospital community sisters was blessed and inaugurated on 14 April.
Mrs. Longri expressed her joy at this new milestone of the Diocese of Miao. “Everyone has been asking when this hospital will start functioning. Lack of proper medical facility in our area is a concern for all of us. And it was a huge relief for the people of this area to see a good hospital in this area”, she said speaking on the occasion. “I am very happy the convent is inaugurated today and we all hope that the new hospital will be a reality soon”, she added.
Sr. Nirmala SH, the Lab Technician and Sr. Elizabeth SH, trained nurse will form the new hospital community at Injan with Sr. Alphonsamma SH as Superior of the House.
Bishop George and the neighbouring community gathered for the event prayed for God’s blessing and mercy to have the hospital functioning within this year.
