Vision Statement

We, the sisters of the congregation of Jesus & Mary serving India since 1842 commit ourselves to the promotion of a more just and humane society in our country. The inspiration provided by our Foundress, Claudine Thevenet, since 1818, continues to strengthen this commitment.

In the India of today, the pressures of casteism, communalism, poverty and exploitative structures make it imperative to equip our students not only with intellectual skills but also with a set of attitudes imbued with social, moral and spiritual values especially compassion, tolerance and forgiveness.

Our commitment to this kind of education is made in order to serve specifically the young and among the poor. We will also seek to conscientize them of their rights and struggle with them in the face of ongoing oppression and exploitation.

We also seek to sensitize our students to the emerging environmental concerns, in order to protect our planet Earth and save its depleting resources.

We invite our collaborators, students and parents to work with us in realizing our challenging vision of bringing about a new India and a new world.
