Mossang lauds contribution of Catholic Church

MIAO, Jan 21: WRD Minister Kamlung Mossang has lauded the contribution of the Catholic Church, especially in the field of education and healthcare in the state.
Addressing the inaugural function of the 8th foundation day celebration of the Arunachal Pradesh Catholic Association (APCA) here in Changlang district on 20 January, the minister said “the church has come a long way from being forbidden to enter Arunachal Pradesh to being at the forefront of education and healthcare in the state.”
“Let us keep doing the good work,” Mossang, who is also a member of the APCA advisory board, said.
Held for the first time in the eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh, the APCA foundation day celebration saw the confluence of various cultures of the state.
“This is the beauty of the church. It brings together people from various linguistic and cultural backgrounds,” said APCA President Taw Tebin.
The APCA, which is composed of Catholic believers from the two dioceses of Arunachal Pradesh – Itanagar and Miao – has two patrons: Bishop John from Itanagar and Bishop George from the Miao Diocese. Bishop George, who was present for the occasion, blessed the delegates from across the state.
APCA President of East Arunachal Pradesh, Mungtan Mossang, APCA General Secretary Pekhi Nabam, and Finance Secretary Takam Majeng also spoke.
