Education with its focus on the marginalized , concern for the disabled, Aids awareness programmes, family apostolate, and faith formation takes priority in our Institutions. Our sisters also conduct SCC Meetings, Youth Ministry, Prepare Children to receive the Sacraments, Parish Catechism ...

Through our main work of Education we are looking for ways and means to educate the poor, the marginalized and the school drop outs to equip them for a ‘Better Tomorrow’. To carry out this mission we have organized a number of supportive activities. Even in the best of our schools we have children coming from unfavourable backgrounds. We conduct free coaching classes after school hours for children of the neighbourhood Government schools and slow learners of our own schools.

Jivan Sarita Ashram at Mehsana is a social Service Centre for the surrounding village apostolate, service in the Parish and in the care of girls in our boarding house. Ishwardaan and Carmel Seva Mandir are Social Service Centres providing courses in Typewriting, Coaching Classes and Library facilities for the underprivileged children. They also provide instruction in Health and Hygiene and Adult Literacy.
