HISTORY

The history of mission works in Barwani area dates back to 1922 with the coming of Fr. Charles OFM. Today Barwani occupies a central position in Barella mission, for it is from here the other Bhilala centres like Chikliya, Sendhwa, and Pendarnia were con-tacted. Fr. William Wuellner SVD became the first resident parish priest of Barwani parish. From 1952 to 1970 the Sisters of commu-nity of Lay Missionaries worked in Barwani and they later moved out from there. In 1980 the Sisters of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ (PHJC) joined the parish community.
