Silchar, August 6, 2020 : “Let Bethany grow, flower and bear fruit” has been our constant prayer during the centenary year of the Congregation. As if in answer to this prayer, the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany erected its 8th Province on the 6th of August, 2020 named as Silchar Province. It is carved out of Northeast Province, the latter being renamed as Guwahati Province on the 29th of July 2020.

During a meaningful Eucharistic celebration that began at 10 am, Sr Lucious BS was solemnly installed as the first Provincial Superior of Silchar Province by Sr Joy BS, the Delegate of the Superior General Sr Rose Celine and her councillors Sr Clara Mendonca BS, Sr Surekha BS, Sr Harsha BS and Sr Mary Naulak BS took the oath of the office as the Provincial Councillors.

In the absence of Most Rev Stephen Rotluanga CSC, the Bishop of Aizawl Diocese, Rev Fr Joachim Walder, the Episcopal Vicar of Barak Valley Deanery of Aizawl Diocese, officiated at the Eucharist with five other priests concelebrating with him. During his homily Fr. Joachim rightly pointed out that Silchar had once been the Headquarters of Bethany’s Northeast Province; but that we had shifted to Guwahati in the late nineties only to return this year as Silchar Province. Hence it is a joyous moment in Bethany’s history.

The day’s festivities continued with a meaningful felicitation program put up by the Candidates and the Sisters of Holy Family Convent Silchar to which the Provincial House of the new Silchar Province is attached. The outgoing Provincial Superior Sr Joy and her councillors were lavishly thanked and honoured for their able leadership and services rendered to the Sisters of the united North east Province. The new Provincial Superior Sr Lucious and her councillors were felicitated and showered with good wishes by all present. The presence of God was palpable through the bond of love among the sisters and sentiments expressed during this celebration.
