Sr Christita came to North East Mission after her first profession in the year 1969. She has rendered yeomen services in the field of formal education centres as a teacher, hostel warden and was actively involved in pastoral work in Mizoram, Manipur, Tripura, Nagaland and West Bengal. She was a committed religious, loving superior, dedicated teacher to the poor, and a renowned missionary.  She has carved for herself a niche in the hearts of the children, sisters and people in general. Bethany salutes her for her 50 years of dedicated religiouslife as a missionary in North East India.

Sr Christita was a member of Bethany Convent, Brabourne Road, Kolkata, and had come to Bethany Provincial House, Guwahati for treatment in the month of December. She was diagnosed to have Gall Bladder Cancer. Even in her sickness she continued to be cheerful and prayed for the Congregation and the world at large. Far away from her home land, she was lovingly taken care of by Sr Joy, the Provincial Superior, and all the sisters of the Provincial House.  The Lord was pleased to take her quickly to the heavenly abode.

I express my sincere condolence to the members of Bethany Convent,at Brabourne Road,Kolkata and in a special manner to Sr. Joyand her team members.

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord,
Let perpetual light shine on her
May her soul rest in peace
