Who We Are

We, the Missionary Sisters of Mary Help of Christians are an international organization of women dedicated to the service of people, especially the less privileged and the marginalized of the society.

True to our call as missionaries we aim at building the whole person enabling them to live with dignity and honour finding their rightful place in the society as well as in the life hereafter. The family being the nucleus of the society and woman taking the lead in making the home we focus on her holistic growth particularly paying attention to the formation of her mind and heart. Guided by the wisdom of our Founder we are engaged also in the care and formation of children. Our mission is realized through evangelization and catechesis, educational institutions, boarding houses, youth ministry, health centres, vocational training centres, centres for the differently abled and rendering adequate assistance to the young at risk.

Having made substantial contribution towards the growth and development of the Church in North east India, and being aware of our universal commitment we continue spreading our wings to the rest of India and the world around. Our strong conviction to give the best we can for the world urges us to move on forward.

Founded by Bishop Stephen Ferrando SDB, an Apostle of Christ from Italy to North East India of the twentieth century, we strive on to live the great missionary legacy passed on to us by our beloved Founder and Pioneers.

This official website of our Congregation will give you some idea of our life and work. We are convinced of why we do what we do and the enormous good that can be done by our committed and collaborative efforts.
