Nov. 28, 2013
With the inauguration of St Mary Church at Anatongre village yesterday by John Tsulise ADC Aboi the Catholic community in Kiphire has added one more parish under its fold.
Blessing the Church in the presence of hundreds of well wishers, believers and members of the Catholic community from all over the State, most Rev Dr James Thoppil D.D Bishop of Kohima, Nagaland greeted the community saying, “We are here not to give but to preach the gospel”. Sharing his concern on ‘Unity and Love’ the Bishop said, “God is one and there are not many Gods” and asked the community to love each other. He also said, “When God has given us all we consider God as little good that is the reason why church is divided” and asked the community to share the love of God.
President of the Catholic association of Nagaland, Elias T Lotha called upon the Catholic community of Anotongre not to be served but to serve. Rev Fr Benny Varghese, Parish Priest, St Peter Church at Kiphire welcomed the gathering and shared the history of Catholic faith at Anatongre. He also said, “People were reluctant to embrace Catholic faith in Anatongre earlier but now after so much struggles, the Church has been formed.”
