I had joined Legion of Mary and Sodality after my Confirmation. After Mass we used to have prayers to our Lady on Saturdays. We had to wear a blue badge with Our Lady’s medal it. 1st Saturday of every month we used to have a meeting and program. Occasionally a priest or layman would talk to us about saints. One day Vakkachen Garikirzhil spoke about Saints. Teresa of the little flower, Agatha and Philomena. I was moved to tears, compassion and love to serve Jesus. I wanted to hear more about holy people. The life of saints touched me and inspired me. My desire to be holy like them and devote my life to Jesus my Lord.

In the middle school I was sent to a Catholic school. St. Thomas High School. Here all Christian students were asked to attend catechism class every Sunday. We had confession every Friday after lunch. One day at confession I told the priest I had a desire to become a nun and a missionary to work for Jesus in his vineyard.

One day Fr. George Muthucattaparambil came home. As he was talking to us, our parish priest also came. He asked me to speak to Fr. George and said “He will help you”. I kept quiet. The Parish priest then told Fr. George that Teresa wants to become a missionary sister. Fr. George spoke to me and asked me to write to him. With the help of the parish priest I wrote a letter in English and expressed my desire. After that I received 2 letters from him and one from Sr. BrittCompton. That is how I joined the Society of the Sacred Heart.

Who we are....?

We are a small, diverse and inclusive group, welcoming in our midst a variety of socio-cultural backgrounds, ages and temperaments. Primarily an educational congregation, our earliest ventures were in the field of education

Sophia College for Women in Mumbai was our first foundation in 1941, and remains the institution with which we are most often associated. The College has continued to grow in the years since then, and while some sisters continue to work there, a number have moved on into other areas of service. Today, the range includes Schools, Colleges& Nursery Schools.
