History of Lisieux Convent Puttur :


Lisieux Convent Puttur has honour of being the first branch of Bethany Congregation and first mission station. The house was named as Lisieux Convent under the patronage of St. Therese of child Jesus, who was canonized in the year 1925. The foundation of the convent building was laid on 14 September 1926. Sr. Lourdes was installed as first superior. Education and faith formation was the first mission of the convent.
         
To meet the need of education on 1st June 1925 St. Francis Xavier boy’s School was inaugurated and blessed by the parish priest Rev. Fr. Joseph Aloysius Rodrigues. When the need for the education of girls was felt in the locality, a second School Little Flower Girls Elementary School, Kurnadka Puttur was started in the year 1927.
