So on November 21, 1934 the first SND Sisters from Holland came to Pekalongan at the request of the Bishop of Purwokerto. They have Sr. M ALfonsina, Sr. M Reginal, Sr. M Irma, Sr. M Godefrida, and Sr. M Adelberta. These sisters work in a small polyclinic in Bendan to serve small people (now Puskesmas Bendan) with the responsibility of Dr. Mulyadi. They live in rented houses. In 1940 the Sisters bought land from several residents in the Kraton and built a Convent and Hospital with aid funds from the Netherlands and from the income of the Sisters themselves. The hospital that was built was inaugurated on November 10, 1940 under the name “RS Beatrix” (now known as RSUD Kraton). The sisters worked tirelessly while sowing the seeds of faith and love. In 1942 the Japanese occupied Indonesia, all the sisters who worked in hospitals were arrested and jailed, while the hospitals and monasteries were occupied by the Japanese, and even hospitals were used as military barriers. After Indonesia’s independence on August 17, 1945, the hospital was controlled by the municipal government of Pekalongan City.
