Holy Family Parish Japralangso
 
The Holy Family Parish was established in the year 1982. This parish is dedicated to Holy Family. Fr. Sebastian Marangatt and Fr. Thomas Mangalassery were the pioneers. They had to face many hurdles and difficulties in bringing up this parish, yet trusting in God’s bounty and goodness of the people around they went ahead with their mission. The progress and developments of the area were boosted with the establishment of Holy Family School at Japralangso in the year 1983 and the arrival of Clarist Franscan Missionaries of the Most Blessed Sacrament to the scene in the year 1984. This parish has a catholic population of 3494 spread in 20 villages. The area is inhabited by the Karbis, the Adivasis, the Assameses, the Syiams and the Garos. The Arrival of the Missionary Sisters of Charity in 2003 to Japralangso was a great consolation to the orphans and the abandoned ones of this place. Fr. Paul Mattekatt is the present parish priest.
