St.Joseph’s Convent High School
The Congregation of Jesus is founded by Mother Mary Ward in 1609. Our charism is to strive for the defence and propagation of the faith and for the progress of souls in Christian doctrine.
In the year 1853 three pioneers from the home province of Munich, Germany, landed on our Indian soil- after a long journey. Then began the Congregation of Jesus, in India.
Our ministries in India include besides the traditional ministries of education and health care, social action, pastoral and retreat ministry, counselling, caring for the mentally challenged in Varanasi, working with like minded people for Dalit Human Rights in Bihar, collaborating with Jesuits and the TORs of Jharkhand for the uplift of tribal girls. The daring spirit of Mary Ward is seen in our pioneers in these malaria stricken areas and the militancy stricken regions of Assam and Nepal.
