Montfort The Founder

Montfortian Education is committed to Gospel values of Equality, fraternity, freedom and human brotherhood, striving to transform the society through the education mission. "Open to Jesus Christ"

Born on 31st January 1673, Louis Mary Grignion, popularly known as Montfort, grew to be a prophet of his times. He saw God in the poor and gave his life for their cause. In him welled up a constant spring of love, courage, self-surrendering service and commitment for the cause of the poor and the downtrodden. The source of this unending spring was God always. He died on 28th April 1716, but his spirit lives on today in the Congregation of Montfort Brothers of St.Gabriel, Priests of the Company of Mary, Daughters of Wisdom and the numerous Montfortian Associates.

Though the Montfortian society was founded in the 18th century, it is only in 1903 that the Brothers came to India. Today they work in over 200 educational, social and cultural establishments throughout the country.

The activities of the Brothers of St. Gabriel in India are as multifarious as the needs of the country. They can be found in schools, technical institutes and colleges of higher learning, in the special education and rehabilitation of the blind and deaf, in the care of the aged, disabled and orphaned, in youth organizations, in the urban slums and remote tribal villages, and in movements for civil rights and communal amity.

Your being a member of this Institution makes you a part of this Montfortian family, to be part of the growth process in which we all travel together, inspired by St. Montfort --- Our Founder

St Therese of Lisieux

St Therese of Lisieux, born Marie Françoise-Thérèse Martin (2 January 1873 – 30 September 1897) was a French Catholic who became a Carmelite nun at an early age. She is popularly known as "The Little Flower of Jesus", or simply "The Little Flower". She died in obscurity at the age of 24. However, after her death, her autobiography – Story of a Soul was published and became a best-seller around the world. Her books explained her spiritual path of love and selflessness, and she became one of only three females to be considered a doctor of the Catholic Church. "What matters in life," she wrote, "is not great deeds, but great love." She loved flowers and saw herself as the "little flower of Jesus". Because of this beautiful analogy, the title "little flower" remained with her. St Therese was canonized by Pope Pius XI on May 17, 1925.
