After the Holy Mass a short program to commemorate the day was held, in which two books on the Archbishop were released. This was followed by the visit to the tomb of the Archbishop.
In the afternoon, a commemorative service was held at the late Archbishop's parental home. During the function a life size statue of the archbishop was unveiled by the Chief Minister, Mr Conrad Sangma, accompanied by Father John Madur the Diocesan Administrator.
The people still missing him, this is the feeling that gloomed across the state. While all the services and functions were streamed live via Facebook and YouTube channels of various media houses in the city, many books and commemorative volumes were also published and released in honour of this “people’s bishop”.
Speaking on the occasion Chief Minister lamented that “we still have a void because of his sudden demise”.
