New Foundation in Goa, India
Carmona is a beautiful little village located in the Salcette district of South Goa, along the coasts of the Arabian Sea. The 16th Century, Our Lady of Perpetual Succor Church is our parish, just ½ a km away from our Home.
The Archbishop of Goa and Daman, Most Rev. Filipe Neri António Sebastião do Rosário Ferrão, received a property with a house on it as a gift to the Archdiocese for the poor. He wanted to use it for the poor and was on the lookout for a mission to accomplish it. . Thanks to our dear Bro Edmund Antoa, Founder of the Crusaders for Jesus through Mary, who loves the Little Sisters and was determined to bring the Little Sisters to Goa, persuaded the Archbishop to invite the Little Sisters to take care of the Elderly Poor of the diocese of Goa & Daman. Thus, the second foundation was accepted in 2019. During her visit to India on 23rd October Sr. Catherine Emmanuel, our Bursar General, along with Mère Provinciale Mary Clara and Sr. Maria Virginia visited Carmona where they were warmly welcomed with great kindness by Archbishop of Goa, his team of Consulters, the parish priest and a delegation of parish members of Carmona where the house is located. We praise and thank God for giving us an opportunity to serve the elderly poor of Goa and Daman. We entrust these two foundations to our loving protector, Saint Joseph!
