Fount of Light
The first convent we started in Kerala State is in Valillapuzha, in the Diocese of Thamarassery. We realized the urgent need to have a suitable place for the initial formation of the young candidates who join us from Kerala. On 31 May 1988, with the approval of the then Bishop Mons. Sebastian Mankuzhikary we started our humble presence, first in an old house and then in the newly constructed convent. This house is dedicated to Mary, "Fount of Light" (Jyothi Dhara).
Right from the beginning, the Sisters are engaged in Pastoral collaboration and education ministry starting from kindergarten to Middle School. The School provides the environment for the fullest possible development of each learner for living morally, creatively, and productively in a democratic society. In this school, the students from Christian, Muslim and Hindu background live and study in full harmony, appreciating our service and demonstrating that peaceful coexistence is not only desirable but also possible and real. The Sisters joyfully extend their collaboration in the Parish Church through Catechesis and liturgical animation.
The house also provides a suitable environment for the young candidates who join us for their initial formation and vocational discernment.
