Brief History

After the arival of the Steel Plant into the Industrial world of Visakhapatnam every bit of land has become very precious. Nowhere the vacant lands are available in the town. Hence VUDA has developed several layouts outside the town area. One such layouts is at Rajeev Nagar. Our Bishop wanted to open up new stations to make the faith to be communicated to the people of all areas. Hence the Mission procured some land at Rajeev Nagar and constructed an English Medium School as an opening of the door for the people to enter into the Christian Faith. Maria Bambino Sisters are invited and they are assisting the diocese to run the schools at Rajeev Nagar and Vadlapudi. Initially sisters were in a rented quar ters. But now a nice convent building has come up along with school and the church.
