The Society of the Missionaries of St. Francis Xavier, popularly called Society of Pilar or Pilar Fathers, was founded in Goa in India. Its members (352 priests and 90 scholastics) serve in 33 dioceses in India and eight dioceses abroad.
Spreading goodness among the poor and marginalised is the mission of Jesus. In Nampong in North East India we have homes for tribal children as in Nagar Haveli in West India; we cater to migrant workers building Borders Roads near China in the chilly foothills of the Himalayas at Rekong Peo; in Gujarat we have schools and self help groups among the Bhil tribes on the edge of the Rajasthan desert; we have a home for lepers and children homes in central India at Bhopal; in Delhi we have a facility for children of ‘manual scavengers’ and rag pickers’ (such occupations are still part of the 21st century) where they wash themselves, have a meal and study when they are not working. We feed about 250 people daily on the streets of Kolkata. While we are catering to these people, about 100,000 children study in the urban and rural schools run by the Society of Pilar in various parts of India. We are opening a new mission in Nepal this year, another in Senegal and three in India. IT IS ALL ABOUT DOING GOOD – LIKE JESUS.
