Rapid strides of JMJ

Very soon the congregation spread out to the whole of the Netherlands to extend services to the education of girls. In course of time, many young, elegant, and enthusiastic candidates joined the Society, and started promoting education and religion in Netherlands. The Society of J.M.J. made rapid strides over the years. Following the principles of her founder, has grown into a grand Banyan tree that spreads itself across Indonesia, India, Africa, Italy and Afghanistan to provide a shelter to the orphans, handicapped, marginalized, aged, HIV/AIDS patients and has a network of schools, colleges, hospitals and social service centres.
