The charism of SVC is to follow Jesus, gentle and humble (Mt. 11:29) The imitation of Christ demands a life of sacrifice from the sisters who are called to practice the deep humility before God and gentleness towards neighbours.

Motto

Live + Jesus is the Motto of the congregation

The essential pattern of Jesus life has generally been understood to be one of self- emptying in order to be filled with God. To Live Jesus was to have in Francis De Sale’s words, the name of Jesus engraved on one’s heart. It was to allow that name to become one’s own true name, to allow one’s entire self, body, thoughts, affections, actions, decisions, works, and devotion to be animated by the reality of the person known by that name. To allow Jesus to live one did not simply learn about Jesus or pray to Jesus or even imitate Jesus. One surrendered the vital centre of ones being. One’s heart, as understood in the holistic biblical sense – to another living presence. The Pauline dictum” I no longer live but Christ lives in me” (Gal. 2:20)

Mother's Desk

(“I have called you by name, you are mine” Is: 43:1)
Live + Jesus

Everything happens for a reason: purpose driven, at the right time and only with God’s grace and guiding hand. With this great conviction, I joined the visitation congregation of Alleppey .Through my journey here, the Almighty strengthened me for this great venture to lead the congregation in to green pastures.

Firmly rooted in faith, we have slowly but steadily grown and spread our branches- reaching out in love and compassion. After establishing ourselves in the social and educational sector, we continue to make our mark by engaging with the healing ministry & also providing opportunities to poor girls. Our purpose is to build a strong platform for them so that they aspire, conquer their dreams and move on to inspire the world. Our recent endeavour in Africa has been path breaking, especially in fostering vocations.
