    Francis was a man of prayer and he conquered all by his gentle-manliness. Once St. Jane de Chantal asked whether he ever went for any length of time without actually and explicitly turning his mind to God and he said, “Sometimes for as long as about a quarter of an hour”. If we too could be like him!

  • Aims and Purposes of the Institution

    The Gandhian vision of education which is a beautiful blending of Art, Craft and Education is proposed for the new system of education.

    Besides achieving the aim of any good education to discover and develop to the full, the finest qualities in a human being, the institution tries its best to inculcate in every student the true spirit of social awareness. To serve man is to serve God. Every student therefore must cultivate respect for and interest in the welfare of the other. This is the true way of formation of character, discipline and individual personality according to the need of the time. The institution, therefore, will provide them natural, physical and spiritual qualities. It is the duty of everyone to cultivate the best values of life which will enable him/her to live a worthwhile life.
