Fr. Peter Marie Mermier is the founder of the religious body of priests, and brothers (the Missionaries of St. Francis De Sales) who run St. Francis de Sales School at Janakpuri, New Delhi. Fr. Mermier was born on August 28, 1790 and baptized on the same day in the church of Chaumont, a village lying between Annecy & Geneva. He was extremely kind yet very firm,prudent but unusually bold, and intensely active. He led a deeply prayerful life with humility which comes only to those who possess divine strength. Through him the Lord was able to lay the foundation of 2 congregations - the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales of Annecy and the Daughters of the Cross of Chavanod. They are propagating his mission zealously with full conviction.
