Whatsoever you do to the least of your brothers and sisters you do unto me (Mt. 25:45).

In response to our Founder’s charism - compassionate love, especially for the poor and zeal for the proclamation of the Gospel - the Sisters of the Northern Province, under the guidance of Sr Canice, the then Regional Superior and the leadership of Sr Jyoti along with Sr Rosia, Sr Rose Rita and Sr Neelam began their ministry in June 1985 at Mahuatoli, a remote village in Ranchi District (Jharkhand). Living among the village folk in the far-flung area, sharing their residence  and life, being together as a community and involving themselves in the proclamation of the Good news and the empowerment of the poor and the marginalized was a unique experience for them and a great inspiration for Bethany Sisters. Sr Canice assumed the responsibility of this mission in July 1986 and continued with same vigour under the guidance of Sr Wilberta who was appointed as the Provincial Superior of the Northern Province.

On 7th February 1987 with the blessings of Archbishop Telespore P Toppo the Sisters shifted their residence to Mc Mandro, Ranchi (Jharkhand) as he graciously offered 3 acres of land of the Diocese to the Sisters with an old structure which served as their residence. The K.G Hindi Medium School with about 30 children started in 1986 by Fr Lawrence Kujur, the then Parish priest was handed over to the Sisters. Sr Canice took the charge of the school, while Sr Rosia and Sr Melvice continued social-pastoral ministry at Mc Mandro and surrounding villages.
At the initial years they had to face a lot of problems from the local people. Braving all the challenges the Sisters continued their pastoral, educational and socio-medical ministry with undaunted courage under the leadership of Srs Zeena, Erasma, Gracy D’Souza, Stella D’Souza, Yvonne, Rositta, Rose Rita and Sr Dulcine. Bethany Convent Hindi Medium School too made steady progress under the guidance of Srs Oliva, Yvonne, Winnifred and Shamitha. Srs Stella D’Souza, Gracy D’Souza, Priyanjali, Gracy Natal, Prisca Toppo have greatly contributed to the uplift of the poor and  the marginalized  people through the socio-pastoral care, while Srs Lancia, Rositta, Shobha, Joselita have touched the lives of numerous people through their medical ministry.

Bethany Tribal Girls’ Hostel opened in 2004 with a few poor Tribal girls from the surrounding villages continues to be a boon to the financially deprived children.

Bethany Convent School has marched forward under the leadership of successive Headmistresses. Sr Karuna the present Headmistress with her zeal, and persevering effort has succeeded in securing the recognition from the State Government for the Primary and the High School separately in July and August 2016 respectively.  It is a matter of great joy to all of us and those connected with the school from its inception. Currently Sr Supreetha being the Superior of the community gives great service through her animation and healing ministry. The School headed by Sr Karuna has 710 students on its roll.
