The Indian Mission of the Claretian is the brainchild of Fr. Dirnberger. It was he, as Provincial of Germany conceived the idea of starting the Congregation in India. When his name was suggested to accompany to India the young Claretians trained in Germany, he accepted readily as it was the will of God for him in spite his advanced age and inability to speak English. He came, worked and has left his bone in India. The history of Indian Claretians up to April 12, 1993 is also the history of Grand Father Dirnberger.
