Parish Details



Brief History: The Kumarghat Boarding included students from Kanchanpur, Dosda, Gacchirampara and Ananda Bazar areas of North Tripura. In 1994, Fr. Hormis John, C.S.C. visited Gacchirampara and met the people who requested him for a School. During this time, Fr. Lumen, C.S.C., the then Dean of Tripura, Fr. Harry D’ Silva and Fr. Hormis went to Dosda to locate a place for the School, which somehow did not materialize. Again in 1999 the people contacted the Priests in Kumarghat Parish to take care of their education and faith. Fr. Felix Pinto, a Capuchin Priest who had come to Tripura in 1999 made frequent visits to this village. From June 2000, he started living in Mr. Nabin Ham Reang's house. St. Francis of Assisi Parish was established on 1st September 2001 with Fr. Felix Pinto, O.F.M. Cap., as its first Parish Priest, bifurcating it from Kumarghat Parish. In 2001, a School was started in a bamboo house. The Parish, which was established with a few Catholics from one village, has now grown into 9 mondolis.
