MAY THE HOLY TRIUNE GOD LIVE IN OUR HEARTS!


Convent of Holy Spirit (Provincial House) ,

Bangalore – Since 1970

Convent of the Holy Spirit has been the home for many formation groups - from the stage of Candidacy to Tertianship.

It has celebrated the Silver Jubilee of its foundation in June 1995.

 

Right from the beginning our sisters established friendly relationships with the people in the neighborhood and provided medical services in the dispensaries at Basavan Pura and Kalena Agrahara.

Later the dispensary from Kalena Agrahara was shifted to the convent campus. Formation has been the main apostolate of this community. Later on, ministry with the marginalized Dalits particularly women and children was taken up and a Social Work Center called Chinthana was opened in the dispensary premises on July 1987. Today after receiving the necessary training, the Chinthana Center of the Dailt Movement works independently.

Bangalore has continued to function as the Provincial House of the India South Province. Besides this house being the Provincial House and the Formation house, in the years that followed, couple of sisters of this community got involved in the teaching apostolate by offering service at Loyola Primary School of the Jesuits from 1999 to 2005, and in Loyola High School since 1982 to the present.

In the year 2002, with the newly constructed Holy Spirit School in the Convent campus we started our own educational institution, which is presently running up to P.U College.

Thus this House once exclusively meant for the Sisters and their formation gradually opened its doors to various other activities and apostolates!

Holy Spirit Children's Home

Holy Spirit Children's Home, came into existence in May 2006 in our Provincial house campus to educate particularly the girl children.

The ministry would cater to deserving female children like street children, single parent children, children of prisoners, economically very poor children or children who are victims of natural calamities. Currently we are catering 40 children. We provide free education to them in our school.
