Origin and development of Our Lady of the Poor Church Bhurkunda

Fr. Huyghe was in search of a piece of land and got it to begin the mission at Bhurkunda in 1953. In 1957, a permanent parish residence was built by Fr. Michael Bredy who was appointed by Fr. Kelly s.j in charge of the Bhurkunda Parish on Sunday December 7th 1958. On this day this parish church was named as Our Lady of the Poor and was solemnly blessed by Archbishop of Ranchi, Nicholas Kujur. In 1966, Fr. O'Conner s.j opened a English medium school along with Hindi medium in the name of Catholic ashram school in the campus.
