Visitation of Infant Jesus Friary, Hiranagar Jammu

Jammu is the diocese where our Capuchins have worked and developed. The Capuchins were bishops here who have given their best. This friary of Infant Jesus is 35 years old with a parish and a school. Initially the friars started an english medium school which was later converted into english medium on the demands of the local people. Today the school has 1800 students from LKG to XII. A well known school for academics and discipline. The friars work hard both in the school and parish. There are 3 friars who are fully involved in parish and school along with the sisters of Holy Family.

 Work of grace being practiced by the friars....
 Small Friary which is cosy and very homely....
 Newly built parish church...there are 88 families but most of them live in the villages...on sundays they all come to the church and weekends the friars go them...
 The entire compound ....

 The school compound with the convent........

 Very Franciscan Sanctuary....altar with the Background of St. Francis being embraced by the Christ Jesus...very attractive and inspiring too...

 Friars Rijo, Beeny and Francis Xavier
