About Us

A small branch  of the Sacred Heart Congregation, founded by  Venerable  Fr. Mathew Kadalikkattil, on 1st January 1911 at Palai, was begun on 24th June, 1938 at Mylacombu, an ancient parish of the Archdiocese of Ernakulam. Our local Director was Rev. Msgr. Francis Thekkekara, he was a parish priest. When the Archdiocese of Ernakulam was divided in 1957 and the Kothamangalam Diocese took shape, all the convents in the Archdiocese came to be under the jurisdiction of the Diocese of Kothamangalam. Thus the S.H Congregation founded in the Archdiocese of Ernakulam became limited to the new Diocese. S.H.Provincial House was established on 20th Sept 1960. It is near the Bishop's House of Kothamangalam. This  house was the former Bishop's House. When the new Bishop's House was built, the old house was bought for the convent and began functioning on the same day. At that time Very Rev. Msgr. Francis Thekkekara was the vicar of the Cathedral church of Kohamangalam. Our Heavenly Patron is the Holy Spirit. It was the formation house of our province till 1980.

            Since it is the Provincial house, sisters working outside and studying in various institutions are considered as the members of this house. So the number varies.  Now 40 sisters are staying here. 

            Sisters visit the nearby houses and teach Catechism. Three sisters are teaching in a High School. We participate in the Parish ministry. The sisters prepare Wine for Holy Mass in the  Diocese.  Sisters from branch houses gather here for various courses, discussions and group prayer. Two sisters are working in the education department of the Diocese.
