On his way to the Provincial House, he had a short moment with the Salesian Family Members at Nongpoh Parish and was escorted by a police convoy and bikers to the Provincial House, since the Chief Minister of Meghalaya had declared him as the 'State Guest'.

The Rector Major was welcomed with different Northeastern tribal costumes and attires. The 55 strong Savio Juniorate Band welcomed him with their melodious band piece ''14th Regiment''.
