Welcome To Sisters of Notre Dame, Patna

We Notre Dame Educators of Our Lady of the Assumption Province dedicate ourselves

In 1959, the first affiliation was opened in Patna. Three Sisters were sent to start the foundation. They lived at Kurji Holy Family Hospital, as Notre Dame Academy building was not yet constructed. The first ministry the Bishop entrusted to the Sisters was to care for the little primary school at Kurji that had started in the annex building of Loyola Industrial School. In 1960, the Academy opened in a rented building at Pataliputra Colony. When a part of the Academy building was completed, classes were shifted from the rented building to the present location.



THE MISSION TO INDIA

The Sisters of Notre Dame to start a foundation

Christ the King Province, Cleveland, USA, was blessed with a good number of vocations. The province was bursting with missionary enthusiasm. There had been Invitations from Chennai in the South of India and from China to start missions. However, the World War I and World War II prevented the province from accepting these invitations. . In 1948, a clarion call came from Patna, India. Fr. Killian, brother of Sister M. Victorine SND, a Jesuit missionary in Patna, visited the provincial house in Cleveland. and spoke to Mother Mary Agnes, the provincial, about the possibility of a Notre Dame Mission to Patna. Following this, Rt. Rev. Augustine Wildermuth, SJ, Bishop of Patna, wrote a letter inviting the Sisters of Notre Dame to start a foundation in his diocese.
