Services > Education

“The Institute has its main aim the education of the poor girls……what I have learnt in prayer, I will teach to others.” -FD 14

Educational activities in our schools are based on the spiritual experiences of our Foundress St. Bartolomea Capitanio. Education of the young was for her a service of charity. Her vision was “…..…. to continue Jesus’ mission of charity, through the works of mercy to the point of doing everything possible, suffering everything and even shedding our blood for the good of our neighbour” (FD 14).

The Sisters of Charity Educational Society of Karnataka State, Mangalore was registered under the Society’s Registration Act of 1860 on 3rd April 1957 with the then Provincial Superior Rev. Sr. M. Antonietta Lucini of revered memory as the Founding President. After 56 years of its existence, today the Educational Society has Rev. Sr. Matilda Monteiro as its Eighth President in succession. - more details -

Services > Health Care

“The poor sick and infirm will be the delight of my heart.” -Vow of Charity.

We reach out with the concept of holistic health care, promoting it through the integration of other types of medicine. Preventive health care is also given through the outreach programs and in collaboration with Government Schemes.

Health care services existed in our Congregation from the very beginning. The explosion of knowledge and advancement in medical technology made medicine more complex and medical treatment costlier and inaccessible to the common man.

Our sisters are engaged in the health care and supportive systems. Many sisters are rendering their services in hospitals and health centers including administration and direct services. We have two sister Doctors. - more details -

Services > Socio Pastoral

“The religious consecration makes it possible for us to be fully and constantly available to the mission.” -Cs.9

We qualify our works of mercy through charity, gentleness and humility in order to light new hope and courage in the poorest, the forsaken, the downtrodden and the marginalized. We consider our works of mercy as a place where we meet the Lord and through which the people come in contact with His charity. We seek to sense the “Divine’ in persons with whom we live and to whom we are sent.

”God has reserved such a great and charitable enterprise for these times, when the need is great and urgent.. to do everything possible, to suffer everything and even shed their blood for the good of their neighbor.” -F.D. 14 The sisters who are full timers have a regular action plan to face the emerging needs of the times. The stress has been more on empowering the poor and the rejected of society, paying special attention to the girl child, the adolescents and the women whose needs are both material and spiritual., empowering them to claim their rights and doing whatever in needed. They make the sorrows, anguish and suffering of the sick, aged, children, youth etc their own as Jesus did and help them to rediscover the meaning of their lives and regain their sense of human dignity. - more details -
