A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CONGREGATION OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ST. ANNE, RANCHI

The Religious Congregation “The Daughter of St. Anne” had its origin in the sacred soil of Chotanagpur. It was erected at Ranchi on July 26th 1897 by Archbishop Paul Goethals in answer to the situation and needs of the contemporary local church.

The Congregation of the Daughters of St. Anne (DSA), Ranchi is the local Congregation, founded by Mother Mary Bernadette Prasad Kispotta in July 26, 1897 along with three companions namely Sr. Cecilia, Sr. Veronica and Sr. Mary.

In 1885 Fr. Constant Lievens, S.J., the great apostle of Chotanagpur landed in Ranchi as a Zealous missionary. The advent of this Belgian Jesuit marks the beginning of the great expansion of the church among the tribals of the Chotanagpur Plateau. In those days the adivasi (the early settlers) of Chotanagpur oppressed, exploited and cheated by the landlords and money lenders. Properties of the tribals were taken away from them and they were forced to work for the landlords without remuneration. The English rulers did not understand their way of life either. Thus the people of Chotanagpur were in great need of liberation. Fr. Lievens understood the misery of the people and helped them to free themselves from their bondage. Thousands flocked to him to get liberation from the Land Lords.
