About us

The Second Vatican Council was a new inspiration to open a new entrance to a modern era in the Church. The Council enabled the religious congregations to have a new vision about the life and existence of religious life. Inspired by the teachings of this Council, moving a slight differently from the traditional religious trends, combining prayer and action, a new religious life was born with a specific charism of charity. The congregation of Snehagiri Missionary Sisters was formed in the Church especially for the well-being of the people of India. In the midst of various local and foreign congregations, imbibing the lifestyle and traditions of India suitable to the Christian belief, the new congregation was created.
