Welcome to SMMI Province of Raipur

Initially SMMI in India was grouped into three provinces: North Province, Karnataka Province and Tamil Nadu Province which is today grown to five provinces – Nagpur, Raipur, Karnataka, Thanjavur and Salem, and two Regions – Kerala and North East. Mother Jeane Harriete was the provincial for the North India who was succeeded by Mother Mary Agnes in 1979. In 1985 Sr.James was appointed as the Provincial of North Indian province.
