As per the General Synaxis Decision of 1977 a convent was started at Deori the interior tribal village of Mandla in the year 1978 with the prime purpose of direct evangelization. There were 44 outstations for Deori with the nearest one 4 km and the farthest one 44 km away from the convent. The sisters go from village to village walking and stay in each station 3-4 days to deepen their faith making family visits, teaching catechism and prayers, preparing for Sacraments and giving medical care to the sick people. At present there are 28 outstations for Deori. The convents at shahdol, Katni, Amlai Maharajpur too have mission stations which they visit regularly, attend Holy Mass, teach catechism etc. Family visits, catechism classes weekly prayer meetings and rosary, preparation for receiving sacraments, practice for regular family prayer, individual and family counselling are the different means by which the sisters try to deepen the faith of the people.
