Sr.Ranjini belongs to the order named ‘Sisters of the Mercy of the Holy Cross’. The founder of this Institute, Fr.Theodosius Florentini OFM Cap, and the co-foundress, Sister M.Theresa Scherer found the need of the time as will of God. Our founders recognized the call of God in the need of the time. Hence, the MOTTO of the Congregation is: ‘The NEED of the TIME is the WILL of God.’
The Congregation, ‘Sisters of the Mercy of the Holy Cross’ known as ‘Holy Cross Sisters, follow Franciscan Spirituality or following the lifestyle of St.Francis of Assisi, who is the patron saint of Ecology. St.Francis became a brother to the poor and rejected and in fact, to every creature. He addressed brother Sun, Mother Earth, Sister water and lived one with the creation. He sought and lived poverty and our founders used all their energy for the uplift of the poor.

Sr.Ranjini was teaching in different schools in Bihar, Jharkhand, and Darjeeling for 17 years. Inspired by the life of St.Francis and the founders, Fr.Theodosius and Sister M.Theresa Scherer, she left the comfort zone of institutions and chose to live for the protection of mother Earth and simultaneously, works for sustainable development and alleviation of poverty. She believes this call to work for the Mother Earth is a call within the call to live as a Holy cross Sister. The earth is facing the biggest ever crisis for survival. Therefore, we, Holy Cross sisters believe the need of the present time is to take care of the Mother Earth which is in peril. For this reason Sr.Ranjini, makes all possible effort to take care of the devastated Environment.
