This is the first venture of the Claretian Missionaries of Northeast India in Agartala Diocese, Tripura. Initially, Depacherra parish under Fr. Prasad Rao laid the foundation for the Catholic Faith in Suknachari in 2017 with the help of the SRA Sisters from Karbook. Later, the Claretian mission is pioneered by Fr. Janardhan Munnelli CMF who reached Suknachari in September 2020 looking for the possibilities of establishing a mission, after having spent an year of ministry in Holy Cross School, Karbook, under Depacherra parish as assistant priest. A small chapel was constructed and dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary on 19 December 2020 by Rev. Lumen Monteiro, Bishop of Agartala, marking the formal arrival of the Claretians in the diocese. At present there are 80 baptized Catholics, and they all predominantly belong to Tripura tribe. With a view to provide better educational facilities in the area, Fr Janardhan, with the support of the Northeast India Independent Delegation of the Claretian Missionaries, established Saint Claret School in May 2022 with 13 students and 2 teachers. The mission specific to this centre is evangelization of people and education.
