Since few years we the Montfort Fathers have been longing to open a New School in our Indian Province, we also had the dilemma whether to be or not to be for some reason. This dream of ours in opening a new school came to the realization on 3rd of July.

Jim Brady who is our Economo General and an another wing of the school by our Provincial Rev Fr. Michael Sahayaraj. We thank our Provincial for his audacious step which he undertook for Indian Province. May God continue to bless him and all his undertaking. We also thank Fr. Francis who is the Superior of Shanthinagar mission and also the community for their selfless service and hard work in bringing out our dreams to reality and to the authenticity.

On this auspicious day many Montfort Fathers were present to grace this occasion, namely Fathers Joseph who is our Vice Provicial, Selva Kumar, Joji, and Fr Reny. Besides the local priests, nuns, the local MLA, our catechists who are from different substations, our neighbours, and many invites were present for this historical day. After the inauguration there was a cultural programm in our classroom at Kurupam followed by felicitations, speeches and honouring the dignitaries with shawl and baguette. After the inaugural function and the programm what had been arranged we all had sumptuous meal in our new school.

We thank our Provincial Rev Fr. Michael Sahayaraj and his Council for their new venture in undertaking this new mission, it’s really a monumental work for our young Province. May God bless them and the community of Shanthinagar and also our new Montfort School. Be sure of our prayers and moral support. Best wishes.
