Yesu Kripa, Shimoga

 

At the invitation of his Excellency Bishop Ignatius Pinto, the then Bishop of Shimoga the then Superior General Sister Mariella, offered the services of the sisters who started their Apostolate at the Diocesan Primary School and Infant Jesus Parish Church at Sharavathi Nagar, Shimoga on 29th January 1992.

The Kannada Primary School was newly started by the Bishop of Shimoga at the Infant Jesus Church premises in order to give a good moral and academic education to the poor Catholic students of the Parish and to the Non-Catholics of the surrounding area. Sisters Fulgentia and Vanditha were the pioneering sisters who came along with Sister Viventia.

Fr. Felix Noronha, the Parish Priest of Infant Jesus Church welcomed the sisters at the Shimoga bus stand and helped them to transfer the luggage from the bus stand to a rented house, at the Mission Compound, Shimoga. The house was blessed by Bishop Ignatius Pinto, on 29th January 1992. Sister Agatha Mary the then Provincial Superior and many sisters, parishioners were present for the Eucharist and the inauguration.

The community lived for three years in the rented house at Mission Compound. Life was simple and there was peace, joy and unity among the members of the community.
The New Convent building Yesu Kripa was blessed and inaugurated on February 27th 1995 by the then Bishop Most Rev. Ignatius Pinto, who was a real father to the little community.

At present the Sisters take an active part in the Parish: teaching Catechism, seeing to the Liturgy, keeping ready for Mass, distributing Holy Communion, washing and ironing the altar linen, preparing children for the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation, taking active part in SCC meetings, attending the Legion of Mary Curia meetings, visiting the sick in the hospitals and families of our students, parishioners, the poor and needy.

The Silver Jubilee was celebrated thanking God for His abundant blessings. May the silver years turn to gold bringing down yet more graces and blessings for His Kingdom
