“Teaching Sisters of St. Dorothy, Daughters of the Sacred Hearts” in India

Religious Silver Jubilee

“My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour”

Life is a bliss, taste it Life is a beauty, admire it
Life is a promise of God, fulfill it
And life is a mystery, know it, realize it and care for it.

God has called me and planted me in the garden of the Teaching Sisters of St. Dorothy - Daughters of the Sacred Hearts. He carried me during these 25 years as a Dorothean sister. On this happiest and fabulous day, I lift my mind and my heart with a song of thanksgiving to God Almighty and to my Provincial Superior and sisters.

Countless are His blessings and unconditional is His faithfulness and love towards me. As I celebrate the Silver Jubilee of my vestition and first profession, I pray for each one of you – for, you have blessed me with your graceful presence during the Jubilee Mass and for the celebrations thereafter. I thank my parents who generously offered me to the service of the Lord, and I convey my sincere thanks to all the people, dear and near ones, well-wishers and friends.

My sincere thanks to Provincial Superior Sr. Biji and to the superior Sr. Selma for their great love and concern. Thank you all…. Sr. Mary Vadakkekannuvallil DSHS

Here is the history of the Sisters of St. Dorothy, Daughters of the Sacred Hearts, in India. It was a courageous and confident step taken by our Mother General Rev. Sr. Gianna Rosa Sterbini, to start a new mission in India on 15th January, 1983.

Life and Origin

John Antony Farina was born at Gambellara (Vicenza Province) on 11th January 1803 to Peter Farina and Francesca Bellame. He received his early training from his paternal uncle, a holy priest who was for him a true master of the spirit and a tutor as well.

We are convinced that at the time of our consecration to the love of the Sacred Hearts, the prophetic vision of our saintly Father Founder is being impressed in the hearts of each one of us. We feel to be the seed that he has sowed in the wake of the story, to bear witness to the love of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.Read More...
