Holy Cross Girls’ Hostel, Kathalcherra was started by Holy Cross Fathers in the year 1985. Initially for 25 years sisters rendered their free service catering to the needs of the wards under their care and two years of remunerated service. It was the initiative of our Provincial Superior Sr Noeline BS and the generosity of  Fr Immanuel CSC, the then Provincial Superior of Holy Cross Fathers, the hostel was handed over to the Bethany Sisters on17 January 2012. At this time Fr Lourthusamy CSC was the parish priest, Sr Simon Therese, the Superior and Sr Juliana Cutinha, the Hostel Directress.

Hostel had to see a lot of maintenance when it was given to the sisters. Sr Noeline, the then Provincial Superior, encouraged the Superior to do all the repairs as soon as possible so that the hostellers could enjoy better facility. Later, to provide better infrastructure Sr Joy BS, the Provincial Superior took the initiative to upgrade the existing structure and provided the needed financial assistance to put up the first floor and do the other needful repairs. Under the able leadership of Sr Suman BS this work was completed and was inaugurated on 25 January, 2016 by Sr Joy, our Provincial Superior and blessing was done by Fr Lancy D’Souza, the parish priest.

At present we have 125 hostellers from KG to Class XII. Most of them are from far remote village set up belonging to tribes – Reang, Darlong, Garos, Halam, Debbarma Chakma and others. Majority of them are Christians, with 25% Catholics, others being Buddhist, Hindus and pagans. Hostel gets Government stipend for 90 students. Hostellers have set time table with sufficient time for study, play and leisure. All the community sisters play their role for the betterment of the Hostellers under the guidance of Sr Suman the Superior of the community, with Sr Sarojini Kindo, the Hostel Directress and Sr Lucy Uchoi the Assistant Hostel Directress.
