St. Francis convent was founded at Bareilly on 25th June 1986.The foundation stone of the School was laid by late Bishop Alan De Lastic then Bishop of Lucknow.It was wise and prudent from the part of Lucknow Diocese to allow us to start a School of our own,to give us a safer footing and a strong motivation to take up new ventures.Late Sr.Adolphus,the then mission Superior and late Fr. Raymond were the inspiring persons of this institution .When Lucknow Diocese was devided in to Lucknow & Bareilly in 1989,this convent came under Bareilly Diocese .Then growth of St. Francis School was very fast under the leadership of Rev. Sr. Tracila.Within few years it became one of the leading Schools in Bareilly .We have opened a Hindi medium School for the low income group. In the parish too we contribute our share of time and work.Our Community members take turn to make family visits and pray with them.There is a free boarding with 30 girls[Catholics]and they study in Hindi medium from class I-VIII.
