Brief History:

Fr. Felix Lobo was the first Parish Priest to put his foot on the soil of Pithoragarh. A plot of land was purchased for the school and Priest’s residence in the vicinity of the town was blessed and inaugurated on the 21st June 1991, by Bishop Anthony Fernandes. At the invitation of the Bishop, the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany came here to assist in the pastoral, medical, social and educational activities. Their convent and the dispensary were blessed on the 8th July 1993.
