Franciscan Sisters of the Sacre Hearts

Mundoor, Diocese of Trichur (Syrian Rite)

With the decision to build the Novitiate House in India, it was necessary to provide for an appropriate house. Always helped by the Capuchin Friars, in the year 1995, a house and lot was bought in Mundur - Parish of "Mount Carmel". The house is large enough and in good condition, so we decided to transfer the Novitiate here while waiting for a new house . The construction began in September 1996 with the laying of the foundation stone, and the blessing took place on December 9, 1997. His Excellency, Msgr. Jacob Thommkuzhy, the new Archbishop of Trissur, in the presence of Mo. Joan, presided over the First Profession of Novices. Now, the Novitiate has been transferred to Asha Kiran Bhavan, Mysore. We have renovated the old house with the help of Italy, and have converted it into a house for the elderly. On the other hand, the big house has remained the Postulancy and the Juniorate, with a kindergarten. The Sisters help in the parish to do pastoral misions and visit young girls belonging to the parish. Some Sisters study while others go to work in the hospital.
