It is a matter of Rejoicing. Yes, the Province of North East India is blessed with the gift of another priest in the person of Fr. Stephen Langsianmunga CSC.


Deacon Stephen CSC was ordained a priest on 18th June 2022 at Holy Cross Parish, Champhai, in the Diocese of Aizawl. Most Rev. Stephen Rotluanga CSC, Bishop of Aizawl ordained him in the presence of 26 priests, many of whom were CSCs. Many religious and lay-faithful were also present on the occasion. Despite incessant rain and dilapidated road-conditions in most parts of the North East, many managed to reach the spot for the event. Bishop Stephen, in his homily, encouraged the newly ordained to work for God’s reign with full vigour and with profound commitment. Soon after the sacerdotal ceremony, a felicitation program was organized in honour of the newly ordained, and needless to say that it all came to an end, with a community Meal. On the following day, 19th June 2022, Fr. Stephen CSC celebrated his first mass in the same church.


Fr. Stephen Langsianmunga was born on 4th July 1991 in Champhai to Mr. Ngozaakapa and Mrs. Monica Ningngaihluni. He joined Holy Cross as a candidate in 2009 and did his pre-novitiate studies in Holy Cross School, Agartala, Morningstar College, Shillong and Christ King College, Shillong.  After one year of Novitiate formation, he made his first profession on 25th May 2016 in Yercaud, Tamilnadu. He completed his Theological studies at Jnana Deepa Institute of Philosophy and Theology, Pune. On 16th October 2021, Stephen made his perpetual commitment in Holy Cross, at Agartala; and on the following day {17th Oct.’21}, was ordained a deacon by Most Rev. Lumen Monteiro, CSC, Bishop of Agartala Diocese. Fr. Stephen has been assigned for his first ministerial commitment, to Holy Cross Parish, Koloriang, under Itanagar Diocese, Arunachal Pradesh.
