Udaipur, ‘City of Lakes or Venice of the East’ is most important city in Rajasthan in India was founded in 1558 by Maharaja Udai Singh II. It is the historic capital of the kingdom of Mewar in former Rajputana. It remained as the capital city till 1818 when it became a British princely state, and thereafter the Mewar province became a part of Rajasthan when India gained independence in 1947. The head quarter of PSA St. Teresa Province, Udaipur is situated in this city, where we live and proclaim God’s message.

The beginning

    As the years have gone by the PSA Congregation has increased its presence and activities in different dioceses, as a result it became necessary to bifurcate the institute in to Regions in order to be more effective in carrying out its mission. Thus, two regions were erected in 1999 namely Udaipur and Ajmer region. In the year 2005 the existing two regions were raised to the level of provinces. St. Teresa Province is under the patronage of St. Teresa of Lisieux. Sr. Divya was elected as the first provincial superior of the Province.

    In the initial stages this province had 18 communities in 4 Dioceses, namely Udaipur, Jhabua, Baroda and Italy. New stations were opened in different states such as Rajasthan, M.P, Kerala, Maharashtra, Utter Pradesh, Punjab, Manipur, Germany and Italy. At present they work in 12 different dioceses with 33 communities rendering selfless services.
