It is situated at the side of NH 3l about lkm away from Purnea mode. The Holy Cross congregation was founded in Switzerland in 1865 by Fr. Theodosius Florentini OFM Cap and Blessed Mother Maria Theresa Scherer. The members of this congregation work in almost all the continents - America (North & South), Africa, Europe and Asia. The Sisters reached India to take up the various apostolates in the year 1894.
