St.Charles Convent, Thuthiyoor-- Kerala

Foundation Day      :  1993

Present Apostolate :  Education, Socio- Pastoral care

 

The community of Thuthiyoor came into existence on November 8, 1993. The initiative for purchasing the land in Kerala was taken by Sr.Renee and Sr.Saroj from the Eastern Province. As per the decision of the General Council this project was entrusted to the Western Province. At the beginning, the sisters stayed in a rented house for two years. Sr. Bede and Sr.Mary Thomas were the pioneers and later Sr. Annie Nedumkallel joined them as the animator of the community. The community was canonically established on 1 st June 1994. Since our land was one kilometre away from the church, sisters shifted close to the Parish church and on February 27, 1995 the foundation stone was laid for the convent building by Most.Rev.Dr. Cornelius Elanjcal, the Archbishop of Verapoly. The convent was blessed and the sisters occupied the new building on 31, March 1996. PURPOSE OF THE MISSION: The intention of starting this house was to promote vocations and to start a hostel for the working women. The mission was modified to suit the needs of the locality. An I.C.S.E School was started for lower middle class society. Education and Pastoral work are given priority. The first steps taken by the sisters were to visit all the families of the parish, especially the sick, the aged and the poor. The sisters are involved actively in all the activities of the parish. They involve themselves in teaching Sunday Catechism, preparing the children for First Holy communion, Confirmation and faith formation like Thirubalasakyam, CLC, Legion of Mary, attending the BCC Meetings, marriage preparation, Altar arrangement, Communion service etc. EDUCATION: - A small seedling planted now has begun to sprout with the commencement of an English Medium school started by the sisters on 5th June 1996. Sr.Clare Joseph as the first headmistress and Sr. Mini Peter as the teacher began the Academic Year with 18 students admitted to LKG. 8 th November 1997 way a remarkable day for the sisters as the foundation stone for the school was laid by the parish priest Rev.Fr.Jose Thannipaily in the presence of Sr.Damian, the sisters and the parishioners. Soon the construction of the school was completed and the sisters also enrolled about 20 children from Malayalam Medium School and started the classes from Std. II to VI. With the tireless and dedicated effort, Sr.Damian and Sr. Tresa Augustine along with the help of Mr. P. J. Thomas Pandinjarekutt and Mr. Joseph Kattamchery (the then Panchayath officer) obtained the NOC from the State Government and affiliation from New Delhi for the school. In keeping with the changing and upgrading of the school the foundation for the extension of the school building was laid by Rev.Fr.Philip our parish priest in the presence of Sr. Janet our then provincial and the sisters, on 8th September 2013. On 21st January 2017 the Inauguration of the New School Complex was done by Rev.Sr.Aleana Fernandez and blessed by Very Rev. Msgr. Joseph Padiyaramparambil. From the request of the parents, the sisters decided to start the ISC for the ICSE students of our school. After the inspection from the ISC Council, New Delhi the school was granted the permission for the ISC. Good tidings we always receive from the old students as they are placed well in the society and serving the society in different fields. The school continues to give prominence to the economically poorer section of the society.
