Service to the Abandoned The Congregation of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was founded by Very Rev. Mother Scholastica on 21st June 1952 in the diocese of Tuticorin. Within a short span of time 6 other young girls, who were aspiring to have a religious vocation befriended her. Their journey began in a very small way, in the outskirts of Azhagappapuram, Tuticorin diocese.

For Over 60 Years our sisters have lived an amazing story of serving the abandoned in the local Churches, in new and unexpected ways. We are still sisters on the move for serving the Lord, ready to face any challenges in order to take Jesus to the less privileged of our society. We are expected to do anything or go anywhere for the sake of Jesus and for His Good News.
