St John’s Centre was founded on June 9, 1983 by Fr Antoniswami and Br Benedict Kichingia. From the very beginning an attempt was made to keep the life style of the men working there and the developmental activities in line with the culture of the people and their sensibilities. It can boast of over a thousand students, with a 140 Catholic boys. A 110 Catholic girls. It now has a Dispensary that is a boon to the rural people in these distant places, not to mention a flourishing parish with umpteen number of village Mass Centers.
