History and Heritage
Blessed Fr. Basil Anthony Moreau founded the Society of the Fathers of Holy Cross in the year 1837at Le Mans, France. The founder organized a few auxiliary priests, brothers, and sisters to serve the local needs of the Church and also sent out as missionaries to Africa, Americas and Asia. Keeping this spiritual vision of the founder in mind, the Society has established Mission Centers and Educational Institutions in remote areas in Northeastern States of India. The Society runs a number of schools, parishes hostels, dispensaries and social developmental projects like self help groups, justice related awareness programs etc. in Tripura in the Diocese of Agartala.
The Holy Cross Missionaries came to Tripura nearly 80 years ago. Since then the humanitarian activities have been active throughout the state of Tripura. The most important area of concern of the Holy Cross Fathers is to provide quality education to the deserving and the poor children by setting up schools and colleges in the most neglected and remote areas of the state because, vast majority of the people are socially and economically deprived of their basic needs. In the long run, education will redeem and uplift them from their current situation. The institution through education will provide not only intellectual formations to its pupils but promote and instill some Christian values in the lives of these people thus enabling them to grow with hope and optimism.
