Assumption Parish Chokihola
 
Assumption parish Chokihola was established in the year 1974 by Fr. Cyriac Thundathil. It was a challenging task to venture to establish a mission in this remote area of East Karbi Anglong. Fr. Cyriac together with Fr. Thomas Thulumbanmakkel MCBS struggled very hard to bring up this parish. The Karbis, the Adivasis, the Nepalis and the Rengma Nagas are the main group of people inhabiting the area. The opening of the Assumption School in the same year was a stepping stone towards the progress and development of the society

The Missionary Sisters of Mary Help of Christians joined the mission towards the end of the year 1974. The area started to develop with the coming of the Catholic mission. The mission has grown in a big way with the establishment of two sub-centres at Rongbongghat with Venerini Sisters and Koilamati with Fatima Sisters. Today the parish has 38 Catholic Villages with a Catholic population of 3499. The Parish continues to proclaim the message of Jesus through education, social works and others pastoral activities.
