We Draw Our Inspiration
Servant of God
Archbishop Mar Ivanios OIC
Bethany College of Nursing draws its inspiration from the Servant of God Archbishop Mar Ivanios OIC, and the founder of Bethany Congregations, who has shown us an effective way of building up our society as a better place to live in. He believed like many of his contemporaries that the upliftment of the society can be brought by the presence of a group of educated people only.
He was one of those people who believed that education was indeed a liberating factor that could not only free the Indian Society from evils like untouchability and anti-feminism, but also make the world a better place to live in so that the light of God could shine deeper into the lives of his people.
