Learning HISTORY can help us
The work of evangelization here among the people was started by the great pioneers like Fr. Daniel, Fr. Augustine who visited Singarchauri. Later when Fr. Simon came to work, he thought differently. Fr. Simon thought the best way to evangelise here, was to live among the people. In 1913, Fr. Simon bought a plot of five bighas at Bhatta and went to settle there with his chosen Christians. Even though the haressments due to the caste system were strong Fr. Simon carried on his evangelizing work according to his own method.
The tweleve houses built by Fr. Simon were blessed on 29th April, 1932. In July 1939 the Prabhudasi sisters opened a Hindi medium school for the children, which was named as St. Theresa’s School, and in 1946 opened a dispensary which has now developed as the Holy family Hospital. In 1958, the Mission sisters opened the Sophia Hindi Medium School for girls.
