A Greek Orthodox ministry in India

Sister Nectaria Paradisi describes this mission of mercy and evangelism, which includes an orphanage and various educational efforts, including a school for the blind. She also relates the progress of the Orthodox Christian faith in India in terms of numbers of catechumens, newly baptized members, and parish churches built, number of clergy and the theological training efforts which are taking place to fortify them for their holy work. Here’s the story: http://world.greekreporter.com/2009/08/23/greek-orthodox-mission-sets-an-example-in-india/

A French article: http://www.orthodoxie.com/2010/07/lorphelinat-pour-filles-de-la-mission-orthodoxe-grecque-de-calcutta.html & the Google translation; the article includes a film clip (in French, I believe) and  information on the orphanage: http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=fr&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.orthodoxie.com%2F2010%2F07%2Florphelinat-pour-filles-de-la-mission-orthodoxe-grecque-de-calcutta.html&act=url
