Short History of the House

The House of PyinOoLwin, B. Maria Romero, was canonically erected on 15 August, 2002.  PyinOoLwin, which is 3538 sea level above, is a small town situated in the division of Mandalay, the second largest city in Myanmar.The community offered, from the very beginning, a home to students from villages who would, otherwise, find themselves in moral dangers if boarding anywhere in the town. The boarding was also established in the hope of good vocations.
