Skywatch Friday

The Cathedral of Mary Help of Christians in Shillong was built about 50 years ago. The main chamber has beautiful stained glass windows.

The Khasi people of Meghalaya in the Northeast of India are mostly Christians. Theit beautiful state has many forests,waterfalls and cliffs. They were originally nature worshippers, who were converted to Christianity in the early 20th century.

The early German Catholic missionaries had built a church here, called the Church of the Devine Saviour. It was destroyed in a fire on Good Friday in April 1936. This new Cathedral has been built on the site of the earlier church.
