JMJ Bangalore

Society of Jesus Mary Joseph - In Bangalore

After the division of the one Indian Province into three, a new era began for the Bangalore Province. The Province was officially inaugurated on July 19, 1987 with Sr.Joanette Mallavarapu as the first Provincial Superior. The office of the Provincialate was temporarily established on a wing of the novitiate building in St.Stanislaus campus.The Provincialate could not function long there in the formation house with its limited facilities, thus shifted to the newly built Provincialate in JMJ Health Centre, Nagavara Campus, a quiet and suitable place.

The foundation stone for the new Provincialate was laid on September 20,1990 by late Rev.Sr.Joanette Mallavarapu. The then Superior General Sr.Benedict Melchers inaugurated the house on February 14, 1992. However the Provincialate was shifted only on April 4,1992.

Today the Province is spread to various states of India having 29 communities of which 20 started after the division with 233 sisters. Our Sisters are serving in various apostolates like education, health care, social work, pastoral care and evangelization according to the signs of the time, the needs of the people and place and the spirit and charism of the Society.
