Sisters who are sent to mission stations, in India and abroad, usually come here, whenever they come for holidays. The common functions of the society like religious professions, Jubilee Celebrations General Council, and other meetings are held in the Generalate.

Convent History 

The need for a Generalate was found necessary for the coordination of activities of the society and it was established in 1997. It was blessed by our beloved founder Mar. Joseph Kundukulam in the presence of co-founder V. Rev. Fr. Joseph Vilangadan and many priests and our sisters. In the convent premises, there is a home named St. Joseph Sadan for persons with epilepsy. Presently there are 7 women looked after here.
The motto of this Society is"Yes Lord, Here I am." Considering the need of the people of the locality the SND society started to serve the needy with an open hand without any restriction other than a deserving human being!
Sisters take the oath to our Lord to lead a humble and dedicated life in order to serve the poorest of the poor, according to the Gospel virtues. The members also pledge themselves to gain spiritual strength through prayer and penance and to share the love and compassion of Christ through the service to the needy.
Our main source of income is the financial support we receive from our well-wishers and donor agencies
