History

In the year 1832, inspired by the life of Jesus Christ, Bartolomea Capitanio, a young, dynamic and gifted lady at the age of twenty six, founded the congregation of Sisters of Charity in Italy. Bartolomea launched the Mission of Charity, by establishing schools, hospitals, youth clubs etc., which after her death was continued by her companion Vincenza Gerosa. Bartolomea’s vision of charity has motivated countless young ladies for a life of service all over the world.

In 1860, the Sisters of Charity came to India to extend their loving service to the people of this country, in diverse roles. The Sisters of Charity are involved in a special way in educating young girls, by instilling in them sound values of justice, truth and dignity of life in society.

Inspired by these ideals, St. Francis College for Women has as its vision, the education of women for their holistic development. The college strives to help students to develop into intellectually competent, morally upright, socially committed and spiritually inspired women of India.
