And the story goes on...
The Bishop of Darjeeling, Rt Rev Eric Benjamin requested the presence of the Salesian Sisters in the Diocese of Darjeeling and was ready to donate three acres of land at New Chumta, for the construction of the Convent, a School and a Dispensary. It was the long cherished desire of His Lordship Rt Rev Eric Benjamin to have the Salesian Sisters in his diocese and it was fulfilled with prayer and consultation. Our Superiors accepted the invitation and request of the Bishop on 31 May 1983, when the sisters first came to set up the convent.
