Dominic Jala conferred the ministry of Diaconate on 41 students who are completing their Theological studies in Oriens Theological College, Shillong. It was a great Joy for all the Claretians, in a special way to the Claretian Missionaries of Northeast India, to have Janardhan Munnelli and Prasad Pandeeti raised to serve at the table of the Lord. In a small celebration in honour of the newly ordained deacons Fr. Pius Thuruthiyil, the major superior Fr.
