St. Francis of Assisi Church, Mawlangdep

This is the first Capuchin Presence in the newly erected diocese of Nongstoin. Paying heed to the invitation of His excellency Victor Lyngdoh the Bishop of Nongstoin and seeing to the significance of the place for  evangelization and vocations, the council of the Nirmala Custody in consultation with the Provincial definitory decided to set foot in the diocese. On April 29, 2007 the parish of Mawlangdep was officially handed over to the Capuchins and installed Br. Mathew Kalliduckil as the first Parish Priest.
