To care for women …

Madiwala is a locality in Bangalore, India. It is a bustling center of activity. Being at the center of the IT corridor it is well known across Bangalore.

The newly built structure of SCN Niketan in Madiwala, was blessed on Dec. 14, 2014 by Rev. Fr. Johnny Anthony OFM, Parish Priest of St. Anthony’s Friary Church. Bangalore being the IT hub of India, has many women and men from other states getting employment in the city. This SCN ministry in Madiwala is to enable young working women find a home away from home.

Friends and Religious from the neighbourhood gathered to support the Sisters as they re-open this residential facility. Present for the occasion were, SCNs Ann Palatty, provincial, Sheela Palamoottil, vice-provincial, Mary Elizabeth Miller, and SCNs from Chandapura.

Sisters used this event to express their gratitude to the team of construction professionals and presented them with a gift.

God, our all-provident Father, | you have placed the earth and its fruits under our care, | so that by our labor we will endeavor | to ensure that all share in the benefits of your creation. | Bless all those who will use this building | so that by respecting justice and charity | they will see themselves as working for the common good | and find joy in contributing to the progress of the earthly city. | We ask this through Christ our Lord. R. Amen.
