This mission belonged to the undivided Ursuline Ranchi Province from which the Gumla Province was created later in 1997.
The mission developed so fast that today more than 230 Ursuline Sisters witness the love of God in 7 districts in India located in 4 States, through education, pastoral work, social work, health care among others so that all may have life and have it to the full. (Jn 10, 10).
