The active services of sisters in visiting houses, conducting family prayers &providing counselling facilities changed the life style of the common people in many villages where our sisters are engaged in faith formation and evangelization. Two sisters are rendering their services-pastoral activities like preparing for baptism, first communion, confirmation, teaching catechism& counselling in Karunagiri Shrine which belongs to the diocese of Khammam. Sisters organize evangelization activities in and around the village, do regular family visits and bearing witness to Jesus in many ways.
Retreats and seminars
There are a few sisters trained in our province and committed their lives for direct evangelization. Some of them work with different retreat groups like Marian Retreat Centre Dhony, Divine Word Centre Muthangi etc.
Another group is formed and qualified in campus ministry and christeen retreats. They go to different schools preach the Word of God and encourage the children to learn the Word of God. While arranging seminars or talks for students, counselling is also given because many of them are victims of drugs and the guidance help them to abandon their past sinful life, undesirable friendships and to start a new life. Follow up programmes are also arranged may be once in two/three months.
Alphonsa Garden is very much active in many of our schools. Children are divided into different groups, encouraged them to practise the Gospel values through various activities like helping others, teaching the weak students, caring the sick companions etc. Children are very much interested and active to engage in such activities.
There is an urge in everyones heart to know the unknown. Our sisters, knowing the mind of the church spend their time and energy generously to teach catechism to the children as well as the elderly people in remote villages and parishes. People gather in the evening in one or the other family and sisters take this opportunity to teach the Word of God and the prayers. Along with the school syllabus they teach catechism, encourage the children to read and study Word of God, inspire them to live the Gospel values etc. Sisters also teach catechism after Sunday Eucharist wherever it is possible. They are also helped to develop an integral personality, by giving information about various aspects of life.
