Historical Perspective

Our Lady of the Snows school, belonging to the Shimla-Chandigarh diocese, was handed over the Salesians in the year 1996. It is a co-educational English Medium school in the heart of Kullu town. With the increasing number of students, this school did not have sufficient number of class rooms and so work began for an additional floor in December 2001 adding seven new classrooms. It was blessed and inaugurated on 26th June 2002 by Bishop Gerald John Mathias.

The house was canonically erected on 4 June 2003. Together with the school apostolate, the Salesians also took up the pastoral care of the people in the valleys and hills of the Kullu region. With the help of the sisters of Don Bosco Secular Institute of Fr. Joe D’Souza, many Balwadis were started in the remote villages for the underprivileged tribal people of the area. The Christians who were scattered in different villages and who had no pastor so far, were contacted and their Christian faith renewed through our pastoral ministry. One Salesian was appointed full time for this important ministry. Fr. Joe Fernadez was the pioneer of this apostolate. He had broken new grounds, made new contacts and established social work centres such as Balwadis and tailoring for women etc. There is a centre for the physically handicapped, especially for the deaf and dumb at Dhalpur, Kullu.  Fr. Liberatus Bara and his successor Fr. Edward Dang were carrying this mission forward with a team of sisters and the support of the school community.
