Young at Risk:
It is a ministry we have taken up in collaboration with the Salesians of Don Bosco, Guwahati province. In this collaborative ministry at the Snehalaya Centre for Child Rights, Paltan Bazar, Guwahati, two sisters are involved in the management of the personnel and material of the whole Centre, and particularly, Drop in Centre, logistic support for the office and the Juvenile Justice Studies and Services Centre which will hold training and promote research. While one sister works as home-in-charge to look after the basic needs of children another sister serves as the administrator and cashier. We began this ministry for the less fortunate children of our society in 2011.
Supervising the dispensaries of the region:
We have taken up the ministry of supervising the dispensaries of the region under GGSS for the project titled “Community Ushered Regional Efforts in Health Care, in Northeast India” supported by NEDSS, Guwahati in 2016. A sister is set apart to do the needful to improve the health care of people in the region of Kumarikatta, Assam.
We invite worthy girls who join us to become our future members, whom we call Visitors. They are accepted to our Institute after completing their class X or Class XII. We also have Candidates who pursue their Plus II studies. We choose prospective girls who have a determined will to become religious, founded on supernatural motives. Our Visitors have their one year formation in Uriamghat in Golaghat district of Assam, and our Candidates pursue their Plus II studies in different colleges in Guwahati, Assam.
Our Junior Sisters:
Formation of our junior sisters takes place in the communities where they are members, in loving care and guidance of the local superior who is responsible to create a spiritual ambient of peace, love and joy in community to facilitate their growth and development. During the tenure of Juniorate they pursue their higher studies. They have their annual renewal courses and intense preparation for final profession. The annual courses are oriented to provide them spiritual, religious, doctrinal, psychological and apostolic formation intended during the years of temporary vows.
In all our apostolic activities we help the people to fulfil their God-given mission to the best of their ability. In particular we pray and encourage our Catholics to discover, accept and develop the gifts of the lay, priestly, or religious vocation they may have received from God, in order to meet the need of the new evangelization.
The Little Flower League
We share our charism with the members of the little Flower League, Associates of Mary, prayer groups and co-workers. The main motive of the Little Flower League is to seek to please Jesus by prayers and making small sacrifices for the salvation of souls and to support the efforts of the missionaries, as St. Therese did. Children from our boardings, parish and lay associates are encouraged to be members of the Little Flower League. Regular animation and classes are organized for them and the Little Flower League Day is celebrated annually, community wise or region wise.
