Montfort School, Kolathur

Our Founder


St. LOUIS MARIE GRIGNION De MONTFORT, was born on 31st January 1673 in the small town of ‘Montfort’ in France. Even from his childhood days, he was virtuous and exhibited an extraordinary love for the poor. He loved and admired the mother of Jesus. He became a priest and worked ceaselessly for God and man. He went about from place to place with the message of God’s love. He taught and served the poor people and championed their cause. His love for the abandoned and the beggars made him rugged, unpolished and tempestuous.

He was a great scholar, a powerful speaker and an author of many spiritual works, such as “The Love of Eternal Wisdom”, “The True Devotion to Mary”, “The Secret of Mary” and “The Secret of the Rosary”. His capacity to paint and carve, along with his poetic skills, has made him a spiritual “Leonardo da Vinci”.

He never bothered about the consequences of telling the ‘truth’ and doing what was right before the eyes of God. He was victimised by the world for his honesty and conviction.

As a result, he died at an early age of 43 in 1716 on April 28th. He was acclaimed a Saint by the people and the Church authorities. He established many dedicated groups of men and women to carry on his good work, particularly instructing the young. One such organisation is the Monfort Brothers of St. Gabriel.

Montfort School and many such educational institutions all over the India and abroad are administered by the followers of St.Montfort under the banner of Brothers of St. Gabriel.

Montfort Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Kolathur was started in 1997. Our School motto is "In God We Trust". Our aim is to provide an all-round education right from the KG level.
