History

The CMC province of Pala, in the year 1963 initiated a movement by venturing into the unknown and unfamiliar paths of mission in the northern part of AP , Chanda Diocese as the first mission centre of syro Malabar Church in Kerala . The courageous and enthusiastic steps taken by the pioneer missionary Sr.Kochuthresia Neerakal and her team paved a clear way to be bloomed along with the farsighted vision of Bp. Januarius CMI by opening a convent as well as Telugu Medium School in the black gold area of Mandamari as the first CMC house in this area . Further we could grow spreading its branches in serving the people by a house at Bheemaram in 1969.

The strong request of ACC Company management made a way to turn the field of education in 1973 at Mancherial. The intrest for participation in evangelization made our sisters to reach Venkatapuram in 1997 and Undrajavaram in 1980. Through local medium and English medium school we could give value based education to the people of Devapur with the financial support of Orient Cement Company in 1982. The local medium became our first aided school. The West Godavari area is blessed by our presence in Chebrole in 1985. Further in Elkathurthy in 1992 and in Trimulgherry , Sec-bad in 1994 . As the years passed God blessed us with many houses and members . The general Synaxis held on July 19th 1995 , Christu jyothi Region was declared as a province with her six houses in Chanda , five in Jagadalpur and three in Eluru with head bowed in gratitude , the opted members waved their hands to our Alma Matter, our mother house pala, who brought us up. Sr. Dominic took up the rod and staff to lead the new flock entrusted through the green pastures.( 1995-2001)

It was more or less a herqulian task for sisters as well as the superiors to look after the missionary activities of two states with different languages as well as culture. So it was forced to give birth to a new region Jagath matha as a region of pala province. In 2001 synaxis Sr.Rosula was elected as the provincial superior . ( 2001-2006 ) the 2006 synaxix elected Sr.Phinia as the Provincial Superior ( 2006 Dec- 2009)

The Divine power of Lord continue to bless us to spread His name far and wide. At present there are 90 sisters and 15 houses with different institutions attached to it. May His name be honoured and glorified.
