 Educational Ministry


Bethany through its services strove to make a difference in the life of the people of Jharkhand. Jharkhand means the ‘Land of Forests’. In the regional language ‘Jhar’ is Gold. So Jharkhand means ‘a piece of Gold’. Though Jharkhand has a net work of Government and private schools, education has not yet penetrated to all the villages. To give a fillip to the children of the backward area in the field of education, Bethany was inspired to open an English medium School at Ushamatu, Ranchi.

Bethany waited for a sure sign from God to fulfill this dream. The sign came through His Eminence Telesphore P Cardinal Toppo who invited Bethany to participate actively in the mission of uplifting the tribals of Ranchi through quality education. He had seen the commitment of Bethany Sisters at McMandro in their pastoral, social, medical and educational ministry. The proposed place was Ushamathu, Ratu Block, Ranchi, where Mr Antony Joseph was running an English Medium School. He was forced to close down the school due to financial crisis. Mr Antony wanted to sell the land and hand over the school to the prospective buyers. His Eminence Telespore P cardinal Toppo facilitated the acquisition of this land in the name of the Congregation.

7th July 2010 was a memorable day in a History of Ushamatu. Sr Maria Leena, the Provincial Superior, canonically erected Bethany Convent with Sr Maria Nancy as superior and principal, Sr Alka Bindu and Sr Monthi Anita as members of the community.  On the same day his Eminence Telesphor P. Cardinal Toppo blessed the foundation stone of the new Bethany Convent School that would come up. The foundation stone was laid by Provincial Superior Sr Maria Leena.
The number of students from 32 has risen up to 600 hundred from classes Nursery to class 8th.  Sr Madhu as the Superior and Sr Savina as Principal are working hard for the development of the people teaming up with the sisters and the staff. The children who get the education from this school are sure to grow up in life imbibing knowledge, wisdom, cultural values and social responsibility at every step. Bethany at Ushamatu is an agent to bring about a change in the attitude and life style of the people around to create a better and more humane society.
Year of establishment : 07.07.2010
