“Go to the whole world and proclaim the goodnews”!
Chitrakoot is a holy land of Hindhu brethren, a land of Ram, Sita and Hanuman. In 2004 accepting the invitation of Bishop Frederik D’souza the then Bishop of Jhansi diocese under the able leadership of Rev. Sr. Brigit Vadakkepurackal a shoot of the Venerini charism germinated in Karwi, uttar Pradesh. We seldom find catholic presence in that area. Sisters started the mission of education in St. Thomas School which belongs to the diocese of Jhansi.
Besides education, sisters are involved in pastoral activities like catechism for children, family visits and prayers, etc… in collaboration with the parish priest. We recall with admiration, the marvelous deeds the Lord has done for us.
In order to make the schooling effective for the children of distant villages we arranged boarding facility for them. When the number increased in the school and boarding we had to shift the sisters residence and boarding from the school compound. Thus in 2000 a new convent with boarding house was constructed and blessed by Bishop John Mulaguda in the presence of Sr.Eliana Massimi, the present Mother General. The grace of almighty God followed us in every step of our apostolate. The school got upgraded and the number of students increased gradually but the compound was not spacious. So we constructed a new school building in 2013 with good infrastructure in the convent compound for the better education of the students. As a recognition to the dedicated service of the venerini mission which heralds the future of the society, the government granted permission to upgrade the school as High school. The school has made a tremendous progress in all its activities for the development of its pupils.
