Radio Veritas Asia - Zo language service honored Sylvester Asu, a retired catechist who served the Church for 51 years, on April 7.
The celebration was witnessed by the Catholic community of Christ the King parish in Chingjaroi in the Archdiocese of Imphal.
Asu is one of the 21 catechists who trained under the late Father Larrea, SDB, and received his diploma in 1969.
He served in various parishes, including his home parish, where he was much loved. He was known for his ability to unite disputing communities and for bringing them to church to reconcile.
Asu and his wife, who also celebrated their 51st weeding anniversary, are blessed with two sons who became priests. - RVA News
