    Fr. Mullers Hospital has always been a renowned charitable Institution from the time it was established by Fr Muller who came to Mangalore along with six other Jesuits more than 150 years ago. Fr. Mullers has always been a "dear haven" for our entire family because more than three members of our family worked for more than 100 years in this noble Institution and earned their daily bread for themselves and their respective family members. Our Sister Joan also lived in Fr Mullers Convent and did her College and went to several schools and colleges to teach and dedicate towards thousands of students.

    Fr. Mullers Hospital has been a Premier "Signature" project of the Diocese of Mangalore. We still remember, late Bishop Victor Fernandes used to visit Fr Mullers almost every day on his three wheeler and make sure everything was going well under the leadership of late Fr. Reginald Pinto. Late Dr. Lorsab, Dr. Coelho, Dr. Mathews, Dr. Venkat Rao and so many other Sisters of Charity nuns have given their "best of the best" dedication towards hospitalization and many other charities that went along in the Diocese of Mangalore. The Leprosy Asylum was the most noble contribution of Fr. Mullers as well as the focus on Homeopathics.

    We have a daily whisper of prayers almost every day from a long distance towards Fr. Mullers Hospital as an Institution of "Love and Charity" for all those that are sick and need the treatment as well as the cure. May Fr. Mullers continue to shine and prosper every day.
