 The Sisters of St. Charles came to work full time for the Small Christian Communities on 27 th November 1994. This was the starting point of the Jyothi Kiran Convent in the slums of Ayodhya Nagar, Vasinaka East of Chembur. It was blessed and Inaugurated by the Auxiliary Bishop Ferdinand Fonseca of the Archdiocese of Mumbai, with late Sr. Juliana Vas as the Superior and assisted by Sr. Julia and Sr. Dorothy Sequeira. The main responsibility of the sisters was the Christian formation of the parishners, visiting and organizing Small Christian Communities, forming women’s organizations and helping in the mission of the Church. As the time progressed the sisters extended their services to the poor and the marginalized, especially the home - bound invalids and the aged. The Sisters organize baptism instructions, adult catechism, regular Sunday catechism, Eucharistic ministry, pastoral guidance, visiting families, conducting prayer services and Bible sharing. In 2002, on the 26 th May, new residence for Sisters was blessed by Bishop Bosco Penha. Srs. Juliana and Julia moved to this new house, on 1 st June, 2002. Sisters took keen interest towards the sick, poor, aged, widows and marginalized reaching out to the needy. In December 2010 our Sisters were called to take charge of the OLPS primary school which is managed by the Redemptorist Fathers. Taking care of the administration in Boys School is a great challenge. But the sisters really work hard to bring discipline among them. Sisters take care of the education, pastoral activities of the parish, like reaching out to Cell, distribution of ration, medical care, prison ministry etc. Our service goes on in this locality with the commitment of sisters and good will of people.
