Mizoram (the land of the hill people), one of the seven states of northeast India, is a land of rolling hills, valleys, rivers and lakes.  High hills and deep valleys add to the scenic beauty of the State, which covers an area of approximately 21,087 Sq. kilometers. The major hill ranges of varying heights run through the length and breadth of the state, occasionally laced with the plains. Nestled in the southernmost region of northeast India, Mizoram shares a 722 kilometer border with the neighboring countries of Myanmar and Bangladesh.  The Mizoram population belongs to diverse tribal origins who settled in the state, mostly from Southeast Asia, over waves of migration between16th and 18th century.
The State has a Christian majority, with people belonging to various denominations- mostly Presbyterian in its north and Baptists in south. Catholic faith came to the people of Mizoram through the Congregation of Holy Cross fathers, who were the first evangelizers. Concerted efforts of the religious, diocesan clergy, and numerous lay leaders for over a period of 100 years, have impacted the lives of Mizo people. And today, under the diocese of Aizawl, the sharing of the Gospel continues on, especially through pastoral ministry, education, health care and social development.
