Founded in 1984
In 1984, at the invitation of the Archbishop of Bangalore, Rt. Rev. Arokiaswamy, a study house was established at Rest House Road in the city. This gave the members of the Congregation access to colleges and hospitals to further their studies. In 1986, at the Archdiocese’s request, the community also took over the running of a senior citizen’ home at Residency road. In 1988, providence led the Congregation to a more suitable house, “Sneha Jyothi”, adjacent to Asirvanam Benedictine Monastery. In May 1988, this house was blessed and the foundation found a permanent home in the city. In September 1993, a Novitiate was erected at the premises. At present, the Community also trains Candidates.
The Community’s activities include taking care of the Elderly, a Creche, a Hostel for women students and a Dairy Farm.
