The Rector Major was in the province of St. John Paul II, Shillong since the 27th October. He visited the Tripura Region. He is accompanied by his Secretary Father Horrazzio together with the Father Paul O Lyngkot, the Provincial and all the Council Members.

On his way to the Provincial House, he had a short moment with the Salesian Family Members at Nongpoh Parish and was escorted by a police convoy and bikers to the Provincial House, since the Chief Minister of Meghalaya had declared him as the 'State Guest'.

On arriving at the Provincial House, he was greeted by some 500 people consisting of priests and religious, novices, aspirants, past-pupils, co-operators, students and well-wishers. The Rector Major was welcomed with different Northeastern tribal costumes and attires. The 55 strong Savio Juniorate Band welcomed him with their melodious band piece ''14th Regiment''. Thereafter, Father Paul Olphindro, the Provincial, welcomed the Rector Major and those gathered. A welcome song by the Sacred Heart Girls, action song by the FMA Novices and another band piece by Savio Juniorate added much pomp to the programme. The Rector Major expressed his great joy to be in the Shillong Province. The Rector Major then enthralled the gathering with his Mexican and Spanish songs. All were delighted to listen to him.
