Rev Fr. Henry Monteiro, the Parish Priest of Kamagere with the recommendation of Most Rev Mathias Fernandes Bishop of Mysore Diocese, invited the Ursuline Franciscan Sisters to Hanur. Mother Earnestine D’ Almeida was kind enough to respond to the invitation by sending Sr. Apoline Goveas, Sr. Servella Rodrigues and Sr. Cecilia D’souza as pioneers to Christu Raj Convent, Hanur on 11 June 1979.

Being faithful to the charism the Sisters, serve in the parish as well as Sub- Stations for faith formation and liturgical services. Ever since 1979, the Sisters are working in the Education field under the Diocesan School.

Responding to the request of the people of the locality a Play-home was started in 2008. Sr Violet Menezes lovingly took care of the tiny tots to the satisfaction of their parents. A conducive structure is put up for this purpose.
