Mangalore – the base of socio-pastoral mission.  It is a rare jewel, and a desired destination of many for its unique contribution to the social, economic and cultural richness. Bethany is privileged to serve the rural masses, especially the girl children, women and youth and disadvantaged people of our society. Bethany has tremendous capacity to connect all members of the family of Bethany be it in pastoral, educational, social action, or health care and work harmoniously with different groups of people to form a just and humane society – the Reign of God. With mother Mary, Bethany can truly magnify the Lord for His transforming presence as salt, leaven and light, not losing sight of her human failures to realize  fully her potential to be the sign of the Kingdom.
