An understanding of the present is incomplete without reference to the past. It is heartening that the Catholic Church in Tripura has taken note of it and has come up with a volume on the 'Legacy of Catholic Church in Tripura' on the occasion of 25 years of its work. The articles in the volume by clergy and laity on the Catholic Church are a testimony of its work in Tripura and its people. The article in the volume engages with a range of issues. These have been intricately connected with the work of the church in Tripura. These concern with the formation of the diocese and the role of the partnering congregations, the challenges of the church in its work as well as its contribution to the field of education, tribal communities, peacemaking, socio-cultural and health programmes, basic services, and development work beside the issue of enculturation of the church. These are all important issues that concern the church and the people. The volume will act as an important repository for the future.
