Dominican Sisters of Charity of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin

Called to be the lovers of the world and preachers of hope

August 8, 2016 was a memorable day for the Province of India, a long journey to our new mission in Duliajan, Assam. 

Our community was canonically established on 18th August 2018, Sr. Kochuthresia Myalil as the superior, Sr. Premlata Sawner and Sr. Suchita Lakra were the pioneering members. 

Besides the ministry of education, we are involved in the parish ministry, faith formation, youth ministry and the spiritual accompaniment of the faithful. We also regularly pay visit to the families of our parish and of the teachers and students of our school.

Parish Pastoral Ministry: Our parish is known as Duliajan town parish. It is situated in the campus of Oil India Ltd Duliajan. We have 40 families in the parish, we render our service to all our parishioners by our visit to the families and those who are sick and elderly and by praying for them, we join with them in their celebrations and share their joy. We also take part in their moments of sorrow and sufferings and pray for their intentions. We take part in the parish activities like teaching catechism, parish programs like St Francis Xavier’s feast, Easter and other programs held in the parish, we involve in preparing the Church for special occasions.

We have extended our mission to another parish called Vikasika, there we have two mission stations. One is Jutlibadi which is 6 kilometers from our parish and other one is Madhuban which is one and half kilometers distant from the convent. There two sisters go on Sundays and teach catechism and visit the families. We promote vocations for our Province while we are on our mission. This mission station is situated around the tea garden, people work in the garden. They are simple and enthusiastic to learn and are ready to welcome us and help us in our ministry.

Education: The Mission of our community was to collaborate in the mission of education in St. Xavier’s Higher Secondary School, Duliajan, a famous school, run by the Diocese of Dibrugarh. The School has been doing well with good results in the public examinations over the years. There are students from various castes, cultures and tribes in the school, all united with a single purpose of growing to be good citizens in the future. We help the students both rich and poor alike, following the advice of our foundress Marie Poussepin who said “you show no less love to the poor than to rich.” Apart from teaching the subject matters we have always tried to ingrain in our students a sense of purpose in their lives, discipline and sincerity in whatever they do. Being in the school gives us the opportunity to get to know people of all walks in this industrial town of Assam. 

Hostel: We, the Dominican sisters take care of the Girls hostel. At present we have 59 students in the hostel. All of them are Catholics coming from all over Assam mostly from tea gardens, very few are from villages and Cities. They belong to Adivasi tribe and culture.
