The Birth of the Indian Province
Emilie De Vialar
Emilie De Vialar
 

It was during the lifetime of St. Emilie,
who in the year 1847,
at the request of Msgr. Ceretj
the Oblate bishop of Burma
sent a group of six Sisters to Moulmein in Burma
for the work of evangelization.

In over a hundred years the province of Burma
flourished with renowned schools, hospitals, orphanages etc.

Then came the new socialist government in 1964.

 Their process of governance upset the whole existing order.
All schools and hospitals were nationalized and
their property and goods seized.
 

The province of Burma received the second blow in 1966
when the Government ordered
all foreign missionaries to leave the country.
This order also applied to people of Indian origin
who had no Burmese nationality.

Mother Rose Marie,
the provincial superior of Burma contacted
Rt. Rev. Dr. Lawrence T. Picachy, SJ, the Bishop of Jamshedpur.
Being an old pupil of their Maymyo convent school,
bishop Picachy whole-heartedly
welcomed the Sisters to come to His diocese.


The Pioneer Sisters in India
 

The first group of Sisters
Vincent, Antonia, Jascintha, Bernard, Juliana and Brendon
along with their provincial superior, Mother Rose Marie,
arrived in Jamshedpur and
were put up with the Sisters of Mercy
to get acquainted with the language and culture of the local people.
