Establishment and Enlargement of St. Agnes School
St. Agnes School Mangalore started by the Apostolic Carmel sisters in 1965, is a Minority Institution as per the Constitution of India, Article 30 (1). The Apostolic Carmel Congregation was founded by Mother Veronica of the Passion in 1868 and was established on St. Ann’s Campus Mangalore in 1870 with its main thrust being the development of women as persons imbued with deep faith in God and in themselves by providing sound Catholic Education. Over the past hundred and fifty two years of its existence the institute has expanded with a large number of educational institutions in India, Sri Lanka, Middle East and East Africa.
