Kripalaya Convent,

Pernal –Since 1989

Kripalaya Convent, Pernal was blessed by the Vicar General Msgr. Aloysius D’ Souza on 1st August 1989 in the presence of many SSpS sisters and SVD confreres.

This is our first house in Mangalore, and the objective of starting this house was that we work for vocations to our congregation.

The FMM sisters were here in Pernal before our coming to this place, they were residing in an old house which was built by the parish, in the initial years we continued to use the same building and as there was place part of the building was used as a hostel for the students. We also had a nursery; many tiny tots from the neighborhood attended the nursery. In the course of time as the formees’ esp. the students were sent there for PUC and the number of sisters also increased the place was not sufficient for all and therefore one Acre of land was bought adjacent to the old building and in this place new convent was constructed. This was blessed on 23 rd September 1996 by Rt. Rev. Bishop Aloysius Paul D’Souza of Mangalore.

Pernal is a formation house. Candidates and students are formed here for their future mission. Because of the efforts of our sisters we were able to get vocations from this part.

Sisters and students are also involved in Parish ministry. Everyone takes keen interest in teaching catechism, taking active part in BCC meetings, women’s group, choir and any other activity that needs our attention is given priority. A process of discernment is on to make our presence more effective and fruitful here in Pernal.
