Abroad, Dec. 20. The Rector Major, Fr Pascual Chavez has officially bifurcated the territory of the Salesian Province of Guwahati and formed the new Salesian Province of Silchar, with Silchar as the province headquarters.
The new province of Silchar will include the Archdiocese of Shillong, and the dioceses of Nongstoin, Jowai, Agartala and Aizawl as well as  Dima Hasao  district of the Diocese of Diphu. The patron of the new Salesian province is  Bl. John Paul II, in revered memory of the Holy Father who visited Shillong in 1986.
The Guwahati province will consist of the Archdiocese of Guwahati, and the dioceses of Tura, Bongaigaon, Tezpur and Diphu.
Fr. Maria Arokiam Kanaga, the Regional Councillor for South Asia, is scheduled to visit the province for the consultations for the two new provincials in early February 2012. The animation for consultation for the provincials will be in Tura, Guwahati, Shillong and Silchar. The confreres from Aizawl and Dima Hasao  and Agartala will also gather in Don Bosco, Silchar.
This is being seen as a momentous step in the growth of the Church in the region with the Salesian Congregation playing a major contributory role in the growth and development of NorthEast India.
This new Salesian Province of Silchar is being viewed as a Birthday gift  of the Rector Major, Fr. Pascual Chavez to the Salesians in India.
