Patne is located in Chandgad taluka in the Kolhapur district of Maharashtra. The nearest city to Patne is Belgaum (around 40km). Chandgad is one of the backward talukas of Kolhapur district. The Patne Parish comes under the jurisdiction of Belgaum Diocese. he Congregation of The Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo, established their community in Patne on 30 th October 1999. For about 5 years the sisters lived in a parish house and later constructed a building which was blest on 13.04.2005.To reach out for the faith formation of the faithful Rt. Rev. Bernard Moras - Bishop of Belgaum, invited the sisters to Patne. The pioneering community sisters were Sr. Justine Lobo, Sr. Lucy Miranda and Sr. Florine Rego. Patne is a very isolated village lacking in opportunities for education and employment. Therefore along with the faith formation of the catholic faithful the priority of the sisters was to work for the developmental programs for the people. The healthcare of women and children was largely neglected in this area. Empowering women about their dignity and rights, providing non formal education, conducting awareness programmes for women and children was the need of the hour. Sisters have formed Self Help Groups and conduct tuition classes and also started a Pre Primary school. The sisters have been actively involved in Socio Pastoral apostolate in Patne and nearby villages, ever since their arrival to this mission.
