While explaining the purpose of the project, Father Barnes mentioned the need to document different events and historical occurrences in the province and elsewhere. He also pointed out to the fact that that due to lack of proper documentation of the initial stages of missionary life, he was not able to acquire important information about the pioneer missionaries.  The Provincial, highlighted the need to remember with gratitude, those Salesians, who with arduous zeal laboured and left behind all a legacy worth noting.

The walls of the Salesian Missionary Corridor display nostalgic and memorable pictures of missionaries whose life, which, when perceived deeply, or even taken at a glance, could evoke a sense of gratitude and instil in the perceiver, the desire to create and accept newer challenges for the future of the mission of Jesus Christ, especially in the North-Eastern part of India.
