There has been a CJ presence in Nepal since the 1950s when sisters from India moved there to establish a Girls’ High School in Kathmandu. Since then, other communities have been founded and in 2006 Nepal was established as a separate CJ Region.
The main ministry in the Region is school based education. In Sirsiya, in south-east Nepal, our sisters work with the tribal villagers to provide social and medical care.
This is a demanding mission area in a poor country which is politically unstable. Growth possibilities are limited by the lack of Catholics in this once-all Hindu country, and by the political instability of the country.
