Navajyoti convent Potanar is a precious gift that the Eucharistic Lord has given his children to spread His love among the poor tribal people of Potanar and the nearby villages. Mar Paulinus Jeerakath, the then Bishop of Jagdalpur invited us to establish a social work centre in Potanar. Potanar is a small village 15 kms away from Jagdalpur. It is on the Jagdalpur Chitrakot road. On 25 July 1978 Navajyoti Convent was blessed by Bishop Mar Paulinus Jeerakath CMI.
