Promotion of Human Life and Dignity
One of the scriptural texts that most inspired Claret was Luke 4.18-19, where Jesus starts his public ministry by entering the Synagogue and reading the passage from the Book of Isaiah, where he proclaims a new world order ‘giving sight to the blind and liberty to the oppressed and proclaiming a year favourable to the Lord.’

Blood Donation Camp
St. Claret Seminary, Umsning, in collaboration with Nazareth Hospital, Meghalaya Aids Control Society and Meghalaya State Blood Transfusion Council organized a voluntary blood donation camp in the premise of the Seminary to mark the beatification of 109 Claretian Martyrs which took place on 21 October 2017. Dr. Hubert Dkhar from Nazareth Hospital and the team, while giving the awareness programme sensitized the donors on the benefits and the need of blood donation today, which inspired 34 youngsters to come forward for blood donation. As a token of gratitude and appreciation, the organizers presented a memento and a certificate to the donors.
Reaching out to the less privileged
To make the less privileged feel that they are loved and cared, the members of NavJan, Umsning, organised an event where umbrellas were distributed to 50 school going children of the patients of Leprosy Colony and other little ones who were present were gifted with cloths. This noble gesture was initiated by Fr. Johnson Thurackal to protect the children from the upcoming Monsoon season with the support of Missionary Sisters of Charity. An entertainment of sing- songs and dance also was organised accompanied by prayer to make the event so meaningful. The children also had high tea at the end of the event.
