Very Rev. Fr Anil Jose
It is with immense pleasure that I welcome you to the new academic year at Fatima Mata National College, Kollam, founded on the vision of the late Bishop Jerome M. Fernandez, a great visionary in the field of education. Having established the first college in the diocese in 1951, Bishop Jerome’s efforts were to provide quality education to all, especially the less fortunate brethren. Such was the amplitude of his idealism that he wanted Fatima College not merely to bring out sound scholars but to nourish their nationalistic spirit as well, so that they could make meaningful contributions to the development of our country. With this intention, Fatima Mata National College strives to provide an academic ambience to all students, irrespective of caste, creed, gender and nationality. Utilized well, the fuel given by the curricular and extra-curricular activities and the thrust provided by the highly-qualified and dedicated faculty will put every student on a powerful path of intellectual self-actualization, worldly success and spiritual wellbeing.
We welcome you to be valuable members of the Fatima Family. Enjoy the ambience of warmth in the campus, drink deep from its wells of knowledge, flower into morally responsible citizens, be the catalysts of change and enlightenment, and serve the nation as instruments of social justice.
