We are shocked and saddened by the sudden demise of Most Rev. Dominic Jala, Archbishop of Shillong, on 11.10.2019, 10:30 am IST who unfortunately met with an accident in Colusa County, California, US. It is indeed a great loss for the people of North East India in general, and the body of Christ in particular. Archbishop Dominic Jala always had a cordial relationship with North East India Christian Council. It may be mentioned that just last month in September 2019, at his own invitation, members of the Executive Committee of NEICC had a friendly and fruitful meeting at his residence. May his soul rest in peace with the Lord he served faithfully, and God be with the bereaved family.
