Shanti Vihar - A Home of Love and Care for Senior Citizens at Paldane, Kulshekar, Mangaluru was inaugurated by Sr. M Susheela A.C. the Superior General of the Apostolic Carmel on 13 June 2020. Rev Dr. Peter Paul Saldanha the Bishop of Mangalore unveiled the Plaque, blessed the building and consecrated the Chapel with Eucharistic celebration. The presence of Fr Alban DSouza the Parish Priest of St Mother Teresa Church, Paldane, Fr Paul Crasta and Fr Walter DMello made this occasion truly blessed. The architect and engineer Mr. Neville D'Souza, the contractor Mr. Alwin Crasta with his associates Mr. Lokesh and Mr. Manoj and their team were part of this inauguration. The ceremony was witnessed by AC sisters, parishioners and a few neighbours.

This Home of Love and Service is under the management of the Sisters of the Apostolic Carmel, Karnataka Province which was founded for the faith formation of young girls and other Apostolic works, by Venerable Mother Veronica who also showed the way to reach out to the sick, elderly and the rejected by her devoted and loving service with the motto "God Alone Suffices".

"Shanti Vihar" is a new endeavor of the Apostolic Carmel, which completes 150 years of its existence in India. It is a holistic and unified three storied building with a courtyard in the centre and balconies on each floor as well as place for recreation. A lift, a ramp and a staircase connects the three floors. However the most attractive spot which surely brings peace and solace to those preparing for their home going is the Chapel.

The generosity of Mrs Gladys Montheiro and her husband late Mr B V Montheiro was gratefully acknowledged for gifting the land for this noble cause.

The first community of Shanti Vihar with Sr Maria Asumptha as the Superior along with sisters Benedicta Furtado, Maria Sonal and Erena Fernandes are on this mission of the congregation under Karnataka Province. Our good wishes and prayers surround them in this noble work. May the Lord bless the head, heart and hands that blended in the realization of "Shanti Vihar", a Home of dignity, love and care for the senior citizens. Surely the saying of Jim Rohn - 'Whatever good things we build, end up building us’ comes true.
