Maharo - Jharkand

In the year 2013, we met Fr. Peri Nayagam Moses SJ, Fr. Sarto VG – Ansaldo Diocese and Most Rev. Julius Marandi, the Bishop of Dhumka. Diocese in Goa during National Convention of SCC. We, the sisters, the Bishop and Fr. Peri Nayagam Moses SJ sat in BOM JESUS Basilica and talked about the Missionary zeal of St. Francis Xavier and also extending our mission in Dumka diocese. For the past three years we have visited Dumka three times and discussed with the Bishop. It is a pleasant news that Rev. Fr. Varghese Pallipalakatt SJ, the provincial of Dumka Raiganj invited us in the Month of February to collaborate with the Jesuits in the field of Education, health and pastoral in Maharo at Dumka.

We realized that, " the time had come to start our mission in Dumka" and sent four of our sisters Sr. Jayanthi (Staff Nurse),Sr. Santhya, Sr. Deva and Sr. Aruna on 6th June. They started their ministries on 15th June. Since our founder Rev. Fr. Michael Ansaldo is a Jesuit Priest our sisters feel happy to work with them. We the Gonzaga sisters extend our heartfelt thanks to the provincial for his support and sincere thanks to the superior, principal, vice principal and all the community members for taking care and making necessary arrangements for our sisters. Let us pray for our sisters to work with zeal and missionary spirit.
