We, the Sisters of the Congregation of Jesus and Mary, serving in 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.

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

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

The VISION STATEMENTgiven above is an expression of our hopes and dreams for all at St. Joseph’s.
