BELLARY, AUGUST 31: The newly built convent building for the Sacred Heart Sisters was blessed by Bishop Henry D’Souza on August 31 at Kurgodu, 28 kms away from Bellary.

Sr. Ancy shs, Regional Superior of Sacred Heart Sisters, declared open the new building and Fr. Julius Kumar shf, laid the foundation stone for the new school building.

In his homily Bishop Henry D’Souza appreciated the pastoral and educational work done by the Sacred Heart Sisters in the historical town of Kurugodu amidst a predominantly Hindu community.

“In a multi-religious context, the presence of the religious sisters should be to be shining lights illuminating the minds through education and by their exemplary life be true witnesses of Risen Lord”, Bishop stated.

Bishop D’Souza insisted on the need of “promoting greater inter-religious dialogue and more of people to people interaction.”

The Sacred Heart Sisters are running a modest school in Kurgodu with about 300 students.

The local parish priest along with a number of priests, nuns, lay faithful together with a sizable gathering of non-Christians attended the programme.

Local Superior Sr. Arokia thanked the gathering and the programme ended with a fellowship meal.
