SACRED HEART PARISH, BISHRAMGANJ

Brief History: Sacred Heart Parish Bishramganj came into existence on 10th May 1995. The Parish was carved out of Mariamnagar Parish and late Bishop Denzil of Silchar entrusted it to the Salesians of Don Bosco who were running St. Xavier’s School Pathaliaghat since 1991. The Parish functioned from the same campus as the School and Fr. Joseph Kizhakkechennadu, S.D.B. the Rector of St. Xavier’s was made the first Parish Priest. In May 2002, the Parish was shifted to Don Bosco Centre, where a new Salesian presence was started in 1999 and Coaching classes for Madhyamik dropouts and Vocational Training were given to the Youth. In September 2007, the Killa Block area was added to Bishramganj Parish detaching it from Tuikarmaw Parish. 

In Bishramganj, the Vocational Training Centre with employment oriented courses and agricultural training for dropouts is going on. 

A School was begun in Naba Sardar Para in 2006. Likewise a School was started in the Centre in 2010. Since June 2013, the F.M.M. Sisters are looking after both these Schools. Another School was started at Herma in 2010. In 2011, a School was started at Sukmohanpara in the Killa area, and the M.S.M.H.C. Sisters are looking after it. St. Xavier's School at Pathaliaghat, run by the Salesians of Don Bosco is now a Higher Secondary School under the CBSE Board. The Hostel caters to a large number of children from the interior villages of Tripura.

Auxilium Convent, belonging to the F.M.A. Sisters cares for the Girls in the Hostel and they run the Pre-primary section in their premises.

The M.S.M.H.C. Sisters started Don Bosco School in Udaipur Town in 1999 and today it has grown to be a big Institution under the CBSE Board. A Hostel for Girls is on the campus.

The Apostolic Carmel (A.C.) Sisters came to Tripura in 2012 to pioneer and run St. Joseph School for the Diocese. Their Convent at Gokulnagar is the first in the Diocese of Agartala.

The Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (F.M.M.) Sisters came to the Diocese in June 2013 with six Sisters from five Provinces. Today they look after the Parish School at the Centre and help in the pastoral work.
