The Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of Mary Help of Christians celebrated the first profession of 42 young novices on 8th December 2022 at St. Stephen’s Convent Tinsukia, Assam in a Solemn Eucharistic Celebration presided over by Rt. Rev. Nicolas Hermon, the Bishop Dibrugarh. 
 In spite a world of glamour, comfort, race for success and contradicting values to that of the Gospel, world of money and power, fashion and fusion, man’s thirst for God and His Kingdom finds its way amidst us. Today the world is challenged for its religious freedom, God is almost taken away from youngsters, peaceful co-existence between two nations, two tribes and two ethnic groups is almost impossible, no ground for moral ethics, faithfulness and commitments seems to be out of minds, yet Northeast India witnessed a mega event of religious profession of 42 young girls coming forward to consecrate their life to the Lord in total freedom to serve the Lord and his people, embracing the evangelical councils of chastity, poverty and obedience to God. These young girls, after a long 5 and more years of formative journey in the Congregation have decided to consecrate their life for the Lord.  
On the same day, at Little Flower Convent Hatigaon, 45 junior Sisters made their final Vows to God. In dedicating their entire life for the welfare of the whole Church, the young sisters made a strong profession of faith and courageous commitment to Lord in the presence of a large crowd of Bishop, Priests, Religious, faithful, parents and relatives. In a Solemn Eucharistic celebration officiated by Archbishop John Moolachira of Guwahati diocese, the Sisters pledged their vows to the Lord in total dedication and commitment to His cause. The Archbishop in his homily reminded the sisters that “by your consecration you are imitating Jesus our Master. He is the supreme consecrated person and the missionary of the Father.” He added that the sisters are resolved to imitate Christ more closely and to undertake a life of commitment and generous service.
