The birth of the Province of Guwahati in 1959 from the Mother Province of North India was both timely and momentous. It was the tangible sign from above of the divine sanction that accompanied at every step the heroic feastof the Salesianpioneers who engendered the Assam Mission miracle. On 21st July, 1921, Fr.

Education and evangelization are at the centre of our mission. The pastoral-educative service that we want to carry out is directed to the integral development of the person.
The first and principal beneficiaries of our mission are the young, especially the poorest of them, young workers and those preparing themselves for work, and apostolic vocations; in view of these we work amongst the common folk with special attention to lay evangelizers, family, social communication, and those not yet evangelized.
The activities and works by means of which we Salesians carry out our mission, depend on the needs and situations of the people whom we serve.
