St Xavier's Rutungia

Archbishop Raphael Cheenath, SVD, offered Rutungia land for the Jesuits to open a school. In 1995, two Jesuits, Frs Martin Lakra and Gregory Xaxa, arrived there and opened the school. The Government of Orissa has given permission to run the school without grants. With the passage of time this school has taken firm roots and has already sent up several batches for the State Board Final Examination. It has a separate hostel for boys and girls. A congregation of Sisters has been of immense help in helping with grooming the girls. Much evangelization is also undertaken through village Mass Centers and regular monthly training of catechists.
