SRIKALAHASTI

ASSISI BHAVAN

Context

Assisi Bhavan is located at Srikalahasti, a holy town near Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh. The town is located on the banks of the River Swarnamukhi. As the convent borders the state of Tamilnadu, the people of the village generally speak Tamil.

History 

In 1983, Rev. Fr. Jude Filbert requested the presence of the sisters in the parish to educate the poor children of the locality when Mother Mary Metilda was the Superior General. Consequently, the sisters ventured upon their ministry in Srikalahasti. In 2010, a new convent was constructed and was blessed by Rt. Rev. Dr. Arulaiah, the then Bishop of Cuddapah in the presence of Mother Rita Catherine Michael, the Superior General.

Mission

The sisters started St. Xavier’s English Medium School in 1988 and devoted themselves in teaching for many years. The school has grown over the years and has been elevated into a High School.

This was possible through the dedicated services of the sisters.

The sisters take part in the pastoral activities of the parish.
