Patna was the first mission of the CJ in India. In the mid-19th century the then Bishop of Patna, Anastasius Hartmann, invited our sisters in Munich-Nyphenburg to found in India. A small group of German sisters set out travelling by boat, and then by bullock cart across the north India plains, to reach Patna.
A school was soon opened, and shortly afterwards missions stations were set up in the Santhal region.   From the mid-20th century Indian candidates mostly from Kerala moved northwards to join the CJ, and as numbers grew the Provincial house and noviceship were set up in Allahabad. In 1991 Patna was established as a separate province.
The sisters of the province are involved in education, health care, social work, and spiritual ministries. There are houses of the Patna province in the states of Bihar, Assam, Jharkhand, Sikkim and West Bengal at:
Bellamguri, Bongaigaon, Bhatbhanga, Dumraon, Gulni, Ithari, Jethuli, Katibari, Kritpura, Lohardagha, Namchi, Patna, Sahibganj, Shahpur, Sikandra, Singla.
