SAINT LOUIS MARIE GRIGNION DE MONTFORT (1673-1716)
(The patron Saint of the Institution)

St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort was born on 31st January 1673 in the small town of ‘MONTFORT’ in western France. Even from his childhood days he was virtuous and he demonstrated an extraordinary love for the poor. He admired and loved Mary the most saintly mother of Jesus. He became a priest and worked ceaselessly for God and man. He went about from place to place with the message of God’s love for humankind. He taught and served the poor people and championed their cause.

He was a great scholar, powerful speaker and author of many spiritual works such as “love of Eternal wisdom” and “True Devotion to Mary”. His capacity to paint and carve, along with his literary and poetic skills, has made him a spiritual “Leonardo da Vinci”. He never bothered about the consequences of telling the “Truth” and doing what was right in the eyes of God. He was victimized by the world for his honesty, conviction and outspokenness.

He died at the early of 43 years on 28 April 1776. He was acclaimed a Saint by the people and the Church. He established three dedicated groups of men and women to carry on his good work, particularly the education of the young. One such organization is that of the Montfort Brothers of St. Gabriel who are making his dreams come true in Montfort schools.

Montfort Vidyasagar School and many such educational institutions all over India and abroad are administrated by the followers of St. Montfort under the banner “MONTFORT SCHOOL” . The flame lit by this ‘Holy man’ continues to glow and shine with greater intensity even after 300 years. Students and Staff, who enter Montfort Vidyasagar CBSE School, share in our endeavour to pass on this ‘flame’ to the world.

Our MOTTO

“EDUCATION TOWARDS EXCELLENCE”

“Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuse in adversity- Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
