We the Daughters of the church completed 25 years of our mission in Indore Diocese Dhar, we arrived to Dhar in the year 1997 and collaborated with the in-charge priests to begin the mission in this small station of Dhar, in particular, to begin a school for the better education of the children of this station as well as we collaborated in the social work, especially for the irradiation of leprosy and illiteracy.
In these 25 years of our mission journey, we as a religious family especially the Community of Nirmal Bhavan have witnessed the many blessings of God through the members who lived and rendered their service in this mission station. Therefore, we thanked the Lord for these 25 years of journey and for all the blessings received, through the Eucharistic celebration together with the people of our mission. On 25 September 2022, we had a solemn Eucharistic celebration at St. George Parish Church Dhar. Bishop Chacko Thottumarical was the main celebrant and there were 7 concelebrants (Fr. Thomas Vattarakal, Fr. Pious SVD, Fr. Joseph Vallasserry, Fr. Cherian Pulickal, Fr. Martin, Fr. Philip and Fr. Saji ) who offered the Eucharistic sacrifice and prayed for us.

Along with the Parishioners we the Sisters of Nirmal Bhavan Community animated the liturgy which helped everyone to thank the Lord and thereafter we had a fraternal meal.
