In the year 1971 the first batch of sisters headed by Mother Theophane reached Varanasi at the request of Rt. Rev. Bp. Patrick D’Souza. Then the provincial Mother Marie Cecile and Evangeline came to take the pioneers to Ballia. The pioneers were Mother Theophane, Srs. Caroline, Amabel, Mercedes and Anne Joseph.They began their mission in a rented building (ConventVidyaBhavan).
Thus, the first North Mission field found a temporary abode in a rented house for a month in order to start an English Medium School for children aging between three-six years. His Lordship Rt. Rev. Bishop Patrick agreed to pay the rent for a year. 133 children took admission into the school. They were divided into six sections of Nursery, I and II respectively.
