Bishop of Chikmagalur

Dear Sr. Regina,

I am very happy to learn that the Bridgettine Sisters are celebrating 75 years of their presence in India.

It began in a humble way at Marikunnu, Kozhikode, where they started their first Convent. Today, they are having many Convents in various parts of India. St. Bridget of Sweden had a great love for the Church. She took a very active part in reforming the Church by pointing out the mistakes committed by the Church in those times.

At present, the Bridgettines are serving the Church with real dedication, commitment and sacrifice, in various apostolates.

May the Foundress intercede for all the Sisters of the Bridgettine Family, so that God may be glorified more and through their Presence in India.

Most Rev. Dr. Anthony Swamy
Bishop of Chikmagalur
