Assisi Catholic center, Gachirampara, Kanchanpura, North Tripura

 IN 2000 Br. Felix Pinto my classmate was sent here to this mission....he worked hard....learnt the local language which is Bengali....he is proficient now....started a school....there are tribes from Mizoram who have been displaced....they live in the camps....most of them are with protestant backgrounds....children come to CATHOLIC SCHOOL...their plight is deplorable....they receive some government help....no electricity and no water....

 There are over 100 boarders....from various tribes....they all study in our school....
 THE  friars have 7 substations to look after,,,,a good pastoral care given
 a good attendance on Sunday Mass....I celebrated and Felix preached in Bengali....

The borders look forward for a new life....the villages are without electricity, road and water....very poor food too.....Capuchins of Karnataka are doing wonderful work....please pray for them
