    Father George Mukala was a volunteer from the Chennai province to the northeast as the missionaries here were asked to quit the place. He did not know the local languages: hindi, assamese and sadhri. His love for the mission  and the people fired him to pick up the language and be proficient at that. He was incharge of Digboi mission in Assam.  Later on, he became the Parish Priest of  Tinsukia Parish(upper Assam) and  that of Margherita parish. In both of these parishes, he constructed the Parish churches that stand as testimony to his architectural talents.

In his old  age, he came to rest at Emmaus Novitiate, in Zubza, Nagaland, Northeast India. He was also instrumental in renovating the Salesian College Campus Chapel,Dimapur, the Chapel of Zubza novitiate and the Chapel of Don Bosco, Kohima. He has endeared himself to many people by his fatherliness, warmth and affection. He also spent long years in healing ministry.The Province has lost in him a vibrant missionary, healer and a confessor.

The funeral is on 15th March at 3 pm. at Salesian College Dimapur.

Birth: 1-11-1931
Profession: 24-5-1952
Ordained: 29-6-1962
