I‘ missionary school aims at the integral. Personal formation of children.

To be clear and firm on principles and courageous in action.." To be unselfish in the service of their fellowmen,and to become agents of needed social change in their country.



The school derives its name from St. Stephen, the first Christian Martyr, who is regarded as the Patron Saint of the institution and 15th of Februaryis celebrated as St. Stephen's or The Founder's Day. St. Stephen is portrayed in glowing terms in the Book of Acts, Chapters 6&7 of the Bible.

Stephen was a man of God. He was not only wise but also a person of profound faith. God blessed him richly and he was filled with the Holy Spirit. He performed many miracles and went about spreading the message of God. Together were, however, some men from Cyrene and Alexandria who were members of a group called "Free Men". They began to argue with Stephen and were joined in by others from Cicilia and Asia. They were no match with Stephen who spoke with wisdom that the Holy Spirit had bestowed upon him. They influenced the teacher of the Law of Moses, had Stephen arrested and brought before the Sanhedrin. There were false allegations made against him that he was talking against the Laws of Moses and saying that Jesus of Nazareth would destroy everything and change the customs that Moses had given.When asked if the allegations were true he spoke boldly against the evil practices of the Jewish leaders and warned the people about their rejection of God's messengers and disobeying of God's laws. The preaching of Stephen was not appreciated by the members of the Jewish Council who became furious and gnashed their teeth in anger and when he said that he could see Jesus standing in all His glory at the right hand of God, they yelled at the so-called abomination, dragged him out of the city and stoned him to death. In the likeness of his master he, too, at the time of his death, cried out for the forgiveness of all those who had tormented and killed him.

St. Stephen is a glowing example of spiritual leadership. Even at a very young age he had faith, wisdom, courage, love, forgiveness, humility and, above all, he had been inspired by the Holy Spirit. He stands as an outstanding witness of Christ and a radiant martyr for the cause of Mission.

We sincerely hope that the life of St. Stephen will inspire all young men and women, who come under our tutelage, because they are "STEPHANITES".
