BIRUDUR

JOSEPH’S HOME FOR THE AGED

Context

St. Joseph’s Home for the Aged is located at Birudur, a small village about 3 kms away from Vandavasi. The home is situated in a large spacious land and is blessed with peaceful and natural surroundings suitable for the elderly at the home.

History 

A large portion of land consisting of several acres was purchased for the congregation when Mother Mary Clement was superior at Sacred Heart Convent, Vandavasi. Later on, in 1997, St. Joseph’s Home for the Aged was constructed to take care of the poor

and the elderly of the locality. The home was established by Mother Mary Cyrilla, the then Superior General.

Mission

The sisters devote themselves in taking care of the elderly, especially those abandoned by their children. The dedicated service of the sisters – a blend of love and compassion, is a real blessing for those residing at the home. The serene atmosphere of the house and the surroundings provide an ideal setting for the aspirants, novices, and junior sisters of the congregation to make their annual retreats. Ongoing formation programmes and seminars are also organised for the Junior Sisters at this place.
