The mission in East Bengal, which encompasses part of present-day India, was one of the missions established by our founder, Blessed Basile Moreau. In 1853, the first Holy Cross religious arrived to the region. The Congregation's principal work was to establish the local Church and to evangelize. Despite many hardships, the missionaries through zeal and perseverance were able to convert several villages to Christianity and to construct the infrastructure for the Church.
Presently Holy Cross continues to administer in India with many parishes, schools, and social and missionary outreach programs.
