"Lord's spirit is on me, because He hast anointed me to take the gospel to the poor" (Luke 4:18.)
To translate these words of God into reality, our sisters are persevering within their constraints.
Aiming at the renewal of the families and sanctification, the home mission programme tries to bring up individuals at home level, and houses at parish level in the spirit of divine love. The team members of home mission have been given adequate training for this. They pray and prepares in advance for the mission and thus the efforts prove to be very fruitful. Each team consisting of two sisters visits selected houses. Every year the mission is carried out in 3-4 parishes. Ten sisters are full time in this field and ten others cooperate with it as situation demands.
Spreading the gospel
The word of God is alive and active. Our sisters take particular care to disseminate the word of God collectively and individually, as it is powerful enough to touch human hearts. The sisters carry out counseling and offer prayers in Pathanamthitta, Kottayam and Idukki districts, especially in schools, colleges, parishes and retreat centers.
Spreading gospel through simple life style
During 2010-11 three of our sisters could visit houses of all faiths, choosing to live in limited circumstances, sacrificing personal comforts and security offered by the cloisters. This kind of service is very important and pertinent in these times.
The greatest problem of today is that people are incapable of overcoming the crises of life. The sisters took particular care in this. The sisters trained in various ways are active with dedication in this realm. There are ten full time sisters in this service and they target schools, retreat centers and families.
All sisters do what they are worth to lead the family fellowships in various parishes. They pray together and prepare the people of God to know each other, to share and pray together. They take special care to offer awareness classes and guidance to avail of family renewal facilities offered by the diocese.
They head various organizations at parish level and inspire all the people in the families to lead a real Christian life through novel renewal methods becoming of the modern times.
Our sisters are involved in sharing the love of God and offering gospel classes to the prisoners of Pathanamthitta, Peermade and Ponkunnam jails.
To bring up the tri- wheeler drivers of all faiths in the spirit of fraternity and to make them live a virtuous life, auto drivers' unions have been formed at Podimattom, Mundakkayam, Anakkara and Chotty. This is done with the support of the priests and is guided by Fr. Varghese Karuppeli. Sisters support and lead the organization. This organization is successful to a certain degree in getting rid of alcoholism and in promoting a saving and sharing culture among the drivers.
Good news through the media
Sisters take interest in popularizing good periodicals, manufacturing good audio visual programmes, authoring good articles etc. to spread the gospel and to familiarize the ways of living, a virtuous life on earth.
