A Star Over Tenyimia

A Star over TenyimiaBy Fr. Thomas Vattoth SDB

About the Book:
The Angamis of Nagaland call themselves Tenyimia. The title, “A STAR OVER TENYIMIA” is a tribute to all the pioneers of the Catholic Church in the Angami Region of Nagaland, in particular Mgr. Emmanuel Bars, the Missionary Sisters of Christ Jesus and, above all, Bishop Stephen Ferrando SDB who took the decision to send them to Nagaland.

The Title (pronounced Tenymieh):
It was Fr. Marocchino SDB and his friends who put up the first ever ‘Christmas Star’ in Kohima Village in 1955. This star has multiplied into thousands reflecting the starry sky in Kohima during the Christmas season.
