Carmel Convent, Trichy – 2007
Sr. Jayamary AC
“Behold I make all things anew. “ Is.43:19
God intervenes into the life of everyone and fulfills His plan and purposes in our lives and He creates all thing anew.
It was on 25th May that Sr.Anna Maria A.C. who was in charge of Carmel convent, Trichy had to close down the convent at Trichy and returned to Ottapalam. When God closes one door, He opens another. It was decided again at the General Chapter to re-open the convent at Trichy. On 2nd February 2014 the sisters took a rented house at Ramachandra Nagar, Edamalaipatty Pudur, Trichy and formed a little community. Sr.M.Premila A.C was in charge of the community along with Sr.Pauline Marie A.C and Maria Agila as the community members. Rev.Fr. Benjamine Franklin OCD, the provincial superior offered mass in this little house. It was a joyful day for the sisters and for the locality. The sisters were permitted by the Bishop of Trichy to reserve the Blessed Sacrament in this little house.. Later the communitywas shifted from Pudur to Nagamangalam where the sisters had some land. Through the instrumentality of Rev.Fr.Devaraj, the Parish Priest of Divine Mercy Church, a house was taken on rent and the sisters were given posts at Good Samaritan school. The visitation of the Provincial superior, Sr.Ancilla in 2015 and Superior General, Sr.Susheela in 2017 paved the way for a new building which would also be used as a Delegation House.
Delegation Status for Tamil Nadu:
On August 15th 2015 was a special day for Tamil Nadu as there was an Installation of Delegation Superior for Tamil Nadu. Sr.Jayamary was appointed as Delegation Superior. It was on an experimental basis for one year. On 9th September 2015, the Superior General and Council approved the Delegation status.
