To embody the essence of the Motto our Congregation, “Good News to the Poor” (Luke 4.18), our members hold evangelism as the central focus, akin to the soul’s essence compared to a person’s physical form. In a time when education was the primary means of livelihood, our Sisters chose not to engage in roles where they couldn’t incorporate catechism, exemplifying their fervor and dedication to the ministry of evangelization.


Daily Activities at Vazhvagam:

The involvement of the Sisters in the life of the people provides a sense of support.

Intercessory prayer sessions are held every Wednesday from 2:30 to 3:30 pm.

Each evening, we hold a Puthuyir Jebam (prayer).

Every Wednesday entails house visits and the distribution of communion.

Participation in Other Activities:

  • Basic Christian Community training in Tindivanam.
  • Participation in the Harvesting Gospel Centre Programme in Dindigul.
  • Engagement in Catechism Programmes in Madurai.

Evangelization Ministry:

Besides the retired Sisters, both young and middle-aged Sisters actively engage in direct evangelization.


The Evangelization Centre at Vazhvagam operates exclusively in alignment with our motto.

Key Activities at Vazhvagam:

Training in Scripture and the contemplation on God’s Word are provided for individuals of all ages, including Children, young adults, and the elderly, as well as those in formation.

Every first Saturday of the Month, we devoutly recite a thousand Rosaries.

On the Second Friday of each Month, we observe Holy Adoration.

Biblical Seminars are held on the Second Sunday of every Month for Children.

Special Retreats are organized annually at VahIvagam during the Advent and Lenten Seasons.

Each year, we host a family gathering at Vazhvagam for lay evangelists. This event features cultural programs inspired by the Bible.

The newly formed group, Gonzaga Associates, is actively involved in our ministry.
