Daughters of St. Anne - Ranchi (DSA)

The Religious Congregation "The Daughter of St. Anne" had its origin in the sacred soil of Chotanagpur. It was erected at Ranchi on July 26th 1897 by Archbishop Paul Goethals in answer to the situation and needs of the contemporary local church. Mata Bernadatte is a foundress and Cecilia, daughters of Puran Prasad, Mary, daughter of Prabhu Prasad and Veronica, daughter of widow Mokta, were the co-founders of the Congregation. The Daughters of St. Anne then joyfully give their co –operation to those ecclesial works in which our Mother the Church has to face great difficulties in order to bring forth and to bring up her sons and daughters. The Daughters of St. Anne rejoice in doing this difficult kind of work, because through it the Church’s children continue to increase in number and quality. Daughters of St. Anne sisters are the pioneers of this mission in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. They are into Pastoral, Social, Education and Medical ministry. They run hostels for school going female children.
