The Catholic Church took root in the village of Sechii in 1969 when Mr. Guovi, the catechist of Jotsoma gathered about ten people and brought them to Fr. Ittiyachan Manjil and Fr. Tarcisius Resto of Christ King Parish, Kohima. After a year of instruction the village embraced the Catholic faith in 1970, marking the beginnings of the Catholic faith in the region. Since then, the village was looked after from Christ King, Kohima.
On 24th February 1986 a nursery and K.G. school was started in the house of Mr. Nizo by Fr. Chollamadathil Mathew while Fr. Tom Karthikapallil was the Parish Priest of Christ King, Kohima. Initially the entire administration was done by Mr. Clifford Breens. Later T.J. Sunny took over as the Headmaster. The first batch of students appeared for Matriculation exams in February 2000. A village church was blessed on 5th March 1989 and dedicated to St. Maria Goretti. Don Bosco School and Savio Home Sechu stand out as a unique venture of lay collaboration and involvement of the Salesian family.
In 1995 an aspirantate for the tribal boys began at Sechii. The centre was inaugurated on 6th February 1997 with Fr. Chittilappilly Varghese as Director.
