St. LOUIS MARIE GRIGNION De MONTFORT, the founder of the Montfort Brothers of St.Gabriel, was a great visionary who lived in France during the 17th & 18th centuries. He used education as a tool to improve the life of the masses. To continue this noble mission, in 1705 he founded the Religious Congregation of the Brothers of St. Gabriel. In 1903, three Missionary Brothers from France came to India and began the Montfortian Education Mission. Their zeal, hard work and commitment bore much fruit. Today there are about 600 committed Montfort Brothers spread all over the country serving in more than 155 educational institutions and Social Action Centers throughout India.
