About J.M.J College For Women



Society of JMJ


The Society of Jesus Mary Joseph came to existence under the above title for the education of young girls. It started in India with the arrival of seven Dutch missionaries in Guntur, A.P., India on February 24, 1904. In 1962 the Indian province obtained autonomy. The formation of three autonomous provinces - Bangalore, Guntur and Hyderabad took place in July 1987. In 2009 a fourth province namely Raipur Province was erected in Chattisgarh. The Society has 1,238 members working in various countries of Netherlands, Indonesia, Africa, (Ghana) Rome, India and America (New Mexico). The Charism of the Society is "Ever Adaptable Apostolic Availability". According to the needs of the times and places, the Society takes up various apostolates and ministres. The members devote themselves to Medical, Educational, Pastoral and Social works.

110 years ago, the Society of JMJ that made a humble beginning with just seven Dutch sisters, has 100 communities all over the country, serving in 145 institutions of schools, colleges, technical training schools, hospitals, schools and colleges of nursing, health centres, social work centres for development of women and tribals, community colleges for school drop-outs, homes for the aged, handicapped, integrated school for the blind, lepers, HIV / AIDS counseling centres etc.

The JMJ Society in India is ever ready and open to the signs of the times to spread the kingdom of God which is a kingdom of peace, love and justice among our Indian people.
