Welcome To DARJEELING JESUITS.

Parishes

When Fr Cherian Padiyara was the Regional Superior of the DARJEELING JESUITS, he requested Bishop Eric Benjamin, the Bishop of Darjeeling, to start a parish with a multi-ethnic community at Matigara.

Colleges

North Bengal St Xavier’s College, a self-financed degree college, affiliated to the University of North Bengal, and was established in July 2007 by the Darjeeling Jesuits of North Bengal, in a temporary building in the premises of Jisu Niketan School, Matigara, with Fr Cherian Padiyara as the first Principal.

Schools

St Joseph’s School, North Point, Darjeeling, was established by the DARJEELING JESUITS of North Bengal in 1888 at a place locally known as Sunny Bank in Darjeeling town. There were eighteen boarders and seven day scholars on the rolls.

Province

The first Jesuits arrived in the town of Darjeeling in January 1888 when Fr Henri Depelchin led a group of five to replace the Capuchin Fathers (O.F.M.Cap) of the Vicarate of Patna in the parish and school (St Joseph’s Seminary), which, as St Joseph’s College,

Preface

Darjeeling Jesuits have a great affection for their Province even if it is a bit inordinate! In my opinion there are several reasons. One definitely is the people whom we serve and another nature’s bounty, from snow capped mountains to the lush green tea gardens of the Terai and Dooars which make Darjeeling a paradise. 

Houses

The Darjeeling Novitiate Program was started on June 21, 1986 in Kurseong at Mount Carmel to serve the needs of Darjeeling and Nepal. Though part of Patna Province, Nepal Region, because of linguistic and cultural affinity with Darjeeling, preferred to have its novices trained in the Mount Carmel Novitiate, Kurseong. 

Jesuits

The Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) was founded in 1540 at a time when the Church was going through a turbulent time with the Protestant reformation, renaissance etc. Jesuits, placed at the service of the Church and the Roman Pontiff, served the Church and defended the faith very successfully and they continue to do so even today.

What We Do

Jesuits are widely known for their colleges and universities, as well as their high schools.  This is no surprise; education is a cornerstone of the Society of Jesus and has been since Jesuit schools first began spreading through Europe in the late 1540s.

Names like “Xavier" and “Loyola,” are familiar names of the Jesuits institutions in India and abroad.

In his message to the 35th General Congregation of Jesuits (GC35) in 2008, Pope Benedict XVI declared, “The Church needs you, counts on you, and continues to turn to you with confidence, particularly to reach the geographical and spiritual places where others do not reach or find it difficult to reach.”

During the first days of his papacy, Pope Francis, the first Jesuit pope, added his own heartfelt prayers, calling on God to “illuminate and accompany all Jesuits” along these paths.
