Born to Mr. George N. Marak and Late Mrs. Lucia S. Sangma, on 16 February, 1965, in Tura, Meghalaya, Father Januarius is at present Vice Provincial (from 2015 to 2017). He hails from a religious family where two of his sisters became FMAs - Sr. Bernadette, who passed away about two years ago, and Sr. Marcelina who is the Provincial Economer of FMA Shillong Province.

Before taking up his office as Vice Provincial, Father Januarius was Provincial Councillor from 2007. He has also worked in various capacities as Rector, Vice Rector, Principal, and Vice Principal in the various houses of the united Province of Guwahati: Bosco Mount, Seling, St Anthony's Higher Secondary School, Shillong, Don Bosco School, Kokrajhar, Don Bosco School, Tura, Don Bosco College, Tura, and other places.

He is qualified in Social Work, with an MSW from Sacred Heart College, Tirupattur. He is known for his intelligence, passion, hardwork, faith in God and prayer, and other leadership qualities. He is a person of compassion, with a heart for the poor and the young. He is able to relate well with all and has been guiding the young Salesians in formation for the last few years as the Province Delegate for Formation. He has also been in charge and Delegate for the Salesian Family, ably guiding and animating the Salesian Cooperators, Past Pupils and other religious congregations that form part of the Salesian Family.

It is during his office as Provincial, that North East will be celebrating in 2022 the centenary of the arrival of Salesians in the region in 1922. Moreover, our Province will also be reaching another milestone during his office: Diamond Jubilee of Guwahati Province, in the year 2019.
As a Provincial, Fr. Januarius will represent Don Bosco in this Province and the Church in the areas in which we Salesians are working. And above all, Father Januarius will represent Christ and His Kingdom and its values. He will be a leading light not just inside the Province, but also for the hundred tongues, the hundred tribes, and the hundred and more cultures and colours of the North East.

The installation of Fr. Januarius Sangma as the next Provincial of the Guwahati Province will be at 6.00 pm on May 23, 2018. Fr. Maria Arokiam Kanaga,  Regional Superior of South Asia, will be present for the installation.
Our heartiest congratulations to Fr Januarius! May God bless him and his leadership ministry!
