India

The School Sisters of St. Francis in India hope to bring God’s kingdom to the people they serve so that the will of God may be realized here on Earth.  More than 175 sisters work with those who are poor, cast out from society, and in need of care.  We have two provinces of sisters working in different areas of the country; together, they minister to people in five states in central and southern India, in primarily rural and impoverished areas.

In 1936, sisters from the European province began missionary work in India, and young women from India began to enter the convent in Germany.  Today, young Indian women continue to be attracted to the work of our sisters, and the two provinces in India are the fastest-growing provinces in our worldwide congregation.
