Basti
Basil Bhavan

Ashrams

> The presence of the Catholic Church in Basti was made known with the arrival of Fr.Atul Muriankary, of the diocese of Varanasi in 1965, who stayed in a rented house, followed by Fr Sebastian Sequeira, of the same diocese in 1974. The present Mission was started in 1979 also in a rented house, and St. Basil's Primary School was started in January 1984. The Priest house in Basti was blessed on 3 July, 1986 on a piece of land purchased at Katra. A year after this Rt. Rev Bishop Dominic Kokkat CST handed over this Mission to the CST Fathers and declared the priest house an Ashram naming it Basil Bhavan. The School was shifted from the rented house to the new building at Kherighat in 1989. The land was purchased and the building for the school was constructed owing to the munificent contribution of St. Konrad Mission Council, Germany through the intervention of the then Mission Secretary Fr. George Kalladanthiyil CST. For the effective organization and implementation of Social animation and the development activities of the Province DISA (Development Initiatives by Social Animation) a charitable society was registered and its office is functioning in Basil Bhavan. This organization has undertaken integrated community development and development programmes in 60 selected villages in two blocks of Basti district. Formation of self help groups for self reliance, association of women for their empowerment, Balwadies for creating interest in children for regular schooling and other community based programmes are being implemented by DISA.

Birgunj

Birgunj- Little Flower Ashram
Birgunj is the very first entry point from India to Nepal and a prominent industrial Town. Hirmal Iron, a Rolling Mill owned by Jyoti Group of Companies, is the oldest firm in the city. As a part of the companies Employees Welfare undertakings, Jyoti Group wanted to establish a School in the vicinity in which admission would be open to children who come from other neighbouring factories and surrounding villages too. So they donated the required land to open the School. Since the beneficiaries are the children of the factory workers, we were inclined to respond positively to this offer and a MOU was signed between the Jyoti Group of Companies and the Nepal Little Flower Society to this effect on 1st December 2003. On 24th April 2005 the School was blessed by Rt Rev. Msg. Antony Sharma SJ., The Prefect Apostolic of Nepal and inaugurated by Mr. Roop Jyoti the Managing Director of Jyoti Group of Companies and 104 children were admitted in LKG, UKG and Class I. Fr. Thomas Thalachira, was appointed the first Superior of the Ashram and Principal of the School. Our starting an Ashram in Birgunj has immense pastoral benefits also. There are around thirty Catholic families here whose members are mostly employed in schools, factories and are doing business. The Catholics in Birgunj benefit and appreciate very much our availability for their pastoral needs.

Harraiya

Harraiya- Little Flower Ashram

Little Flower Mission at Harraiya is the fruit of the laborious work of many. To spread the message of Christ in the rural areas, through our presence, the provincial synaxis of 2002 decided to establish a community center and initiate integrated development proagrammes in Basti District. The possible place proposed for the plan was in and around Harraiya Tehsil. With the persevering efforts of so many Fathers and intermediary persons Frs. George Aranchery and Francis Kilivallickal could identify and purchase a plot of land just behind the SDM's office at Harraiya. The land is about 28 Kms away from Basti District head quarters towards west, on the National Highway to Ayodhya and Lucknow. It is the biggest Tehsil and one of the oldest in U.P.. Tradition says, this was the pathway of Lord Ram and Sita because the word Harraiya originated from Hari and Raia, which in local Language means Rasta of Lord Hari. This may be true as Ayodhya is close by about forty Kms from Harraiya. Harraiya Mission is indebted to Rev.Fr.George Aranchery who contacted the people of Bibertal, Germany to strengthen us financially. With his persistent efforts we took up the project for the village development programmes and also for the education of the people of the locality. Rev.Fr. Francis Kilivallickal was entrusted with the responsibility of looking after the Harraiya Mission in its initial stage. The foundation stone of the mission at Harraiya was blessed by His Excellency Bishop Dominic Kokkat CST on 19th December 2003. Very Rev.Fr.John Olickal, Provincial placed the Medal and other relics in the foundation stone and Rev.Fr.George Aranchery, Vicar Provincial read out the Time Capsule. And on 19th April 2004, Rev.Fr.Jose Manjiyil, Education Secretary blessed the new School building. Fr.Francis Kilivallickal was appointed the first principal of the School. And on June 27th Fr.Sunny Pulichamakkathottiyil was appointed the new principal. In 2005 Fr.Shibu Kuliraniyil was appointed bursar of the School and in charge of Social Work of Harraiya Mission. And on 26th February 2006 Fr. Shibu took charge as acting principal when Fr.Sunny left for Pune for his language studies. The presence of SRA sisters at Harraiya mission on 3rd July 2006 brought new vigour and vitality to the mission. On 10th July 2006 Fr. Saji Paul Kochuputhenpurackal was appointed the Superior of Little Flower Ashram and Principal of Little Flower School at Harraiya. Harraiya mission is a unique venture to co-ordinate the village development activities together with the School. At present we have 335 students and 12 teachers in the school. In the field of social work we are actively working in 120 villages and five animators completely dedicate their time for these village activities. And there are six balwadies in different villages. Sisters of SRA help a lot in this noble task.

Kalwari

Kalwari- Little Flower Ashram

The aim of starting this Ashram was to extend our activities to rural areas especially in the field of education and health care, keeping up the spirit of our founder Very Rev Fr Basilius Panat CST. In the field of education, both formal and informal methods are aimed at and in the field of health care a formal dispensary and village health Programmes are specially functioning in this Mission.Kalwari Mission was started with the support and explicit desire of St. Konrad Mission Council, Germany. While helping St. Basil's English Medium school in Basti they wanted us to start a Hindi medium school in a village with rural health care and such other programmes The registration of the land was done on 2nd of July 1993. Rev. Fr John Kulathinkal was appointed in charge of the station and he began to stay in a rented house and started his work. First of March 1994 onwards he began to stay in the newly constructed Priest house. The blessing of the Little Flower Ashram took place on 8th of November 1994. The School was informally inaugurated on 18th July 1994. As the School was under construction he decided to run the School in the convent building. Little Flower School Kalwari was started with 96 children. Four sisters from the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of the Queen of the Apostles came from Varanasi to this Mission on 30th of June 1995. Pushpanjali, the new community health centre was inaugurated and blessed by Rt. Rev. Dominic Kokkat CST, the Bishop of Gorakhpur on 3rd July 1995. Fr John began to treat snake bite cases and now it is continued by SRA Sisters. People from far and wide come here to get treatment for snake bite. Now the development work is going on in 22 villages. Fr John Kulathinkal handed over the office to Fr. Jose Paul on 21 August 1997. He made much effort in bringing up the School. Fr Jose Paul handed over the responsibilities of the Mission to Fr Binoy Paalakuzhy on 24th June 2003. Due to his hard work and enthusiasm he obtained recognition for Primary School and Junior High School and the first batch of Class X came out with flying colours in 2005. Fr Binoy handed over the office to Fr. Roy Vattakara on 24th June 2005. In July 2006 the School was approved by the Board of Education, Varanasi and was given the recognition for High School in November 2006. At present we have 700 students in the School.

Mithaura

Mithaura Nirmal Ashram

The land in Mithaura, in Maharajgunj district, was donated by Sri Babu Leslie Sushil Chandra Das, son of Babu Daniel Dharam Chandra Das, who was living in Varanasi. He was a widower. Fr. Mathew Kulakkadanthadathil brought him from Vaaranasi and looked after him in his old age with the help of SRA Sisters. It was during this time (1983) that he made his will to donate all his possessions in Gorakhpur (Mithaura) to the Catholic Diocese of Varanasi through a Will registered in 1984. We are very grateful to Rt. Rev. Bishop Patrick D'souza, Bishop of Varanasi, who handed over this land to the Diocese of Gorakhpur at the time of the erection of the Diocese. Rt. Rev. Bishop Dominic Kokkat CST, Bishop of Gorakhpur finally entrusted these plots of land to the CST Fathers. We accepted this offer as we found this would be a very good place to initiate some good activities in accordance with the charism of our Congregation as Mithaura is a very backward area. After taking possession of most of this land we built a small building as ashram in 1998 and the Nirmal Ashram was formally blessed and established on March 15th 1999 and Fr. Mathew Thayamkery was appointed its first Superior. Later the Ashram building was expanded in 2006 by Fr. Sinoj Thuruthipally As we felt the most important and urgent need of the people of this locality is education, we started a Balwadi and later the foundation stone of the Hindi Medium School was blessed on 4th December 2005 by Rt. Rev. Bishop Dominic Kokkat CST and laid by Very Rev. Fr John Olickal CST the then Provincial Superior. The Nirmala School was started in our Ashram building and it was inaugurated by Rev. Fr. Jose Manjiyil, the Secretary, Little Flower Mission Education Society, by kindling the lamp, on 17th July 2006 on the Death Anniversary of Rev. Fr. Joseph Thoomkuzhy CST the first one from the CST Fathers to intercede before God from the Gorakhpur Mission. Frs. Bijoy Karisseril and Sinoj Thuruthipally were appointed the first Manager and Principal of the school respectively. The School building was blessed by Very Rev. Fr. Sebastian Thundathil CST the Provincial Superior on 23rd July 2007 and the school started functioning there the same day.

Ratna Nagar

Navodaya Bhavan

The Chepang is the most backward indigenous community of Nepal found only in four districts having a total population of 53,200. They live in social isolation and in inaccessible forest regions. Owing to these reasons opportunity for formal education is almost non existent for them. They live in extreme poverty and for five months a year they depend entirely on the forest products- roots, leaves, honey, and fruits- for satisfying their hunger. We found that our work among these people is very much in tune with the charism of our Congregation. Added to this, the innocence, simplicity and spontaneity of the forests reflected in the children reveal a clear image of God in our minds. It is God's revelation in a different way. We opened Navodaya School for the Chepang children on 25th April 2005. It is located in Jayamangala, Ratnanagar-13, Chitwan District in a rented house and 63 children were admitted in to Classes I and II. All the children in the School live in the hostel, as their houses are very far in the forests. These children are very active, talented and with average intelligence. At present there are 120 children from class I to IV. From July 2006 two sisters of the Sisters of the Charity of Mangalore Province are collaborating with us. From class VI we plan to begin skill development programmes for them like Music, drawing, dance, computer, tailoring etc. Since children are with us for twenty four hours, we get ample time to give such training. The Nepal CCS organization has kindly entered into a contract with the Nepal Little Flower Society concerning the financial assistance to meet the operational expenses of the School and the hostel. The pastoral needs of the Catholic community in Hetauda, 65kms away from Ratnanagar are looked after by our Ashram.
