February 11th, 1969
St. Bridget’s Covent in Mysore was established on 11th February 1969. This is situated amidst the calm surroundings of J.P. Nagar and Nachanahallypalya.

The Bridgettines were invited by His Excellency, Dr. Mathias Fernanades, the then Bishop of Mysore. The Carmelite fathers were instrumental for the spiritual nourishment of the community along with the parish priest of Mysore Monsignor Cappelle. The first Indian delegate and the pioneers toiled in the barren land to set up the convent to its present glory.

The community in Mysore was privileged to reach out to the poor and marginalized with distribution of food, clothing, medicine and constructing houses for many who had no shelter. And needless to say, the service rendered through the dispensary has been highly appreciated. The many humanitarian activities, besides imparting faith formation, are being carried on with enthusiasm and great generosity even today. The community is ever grateful to our Beloved Mother General and the benefactors for supporting us in our endeavor to spread the message of love and compassion.
