St.Thomas Home

Normal 0 21 false false false FR JA X-NONE

This home came into existence in 1965. The Salesian sisters ably managed this Home in the beginning and later the Missionaries of charity of Mother Theresa looked after from 1967… After them the Sisters of St.Louis Gonzaga volunteered to look after the Center’s kitchen and St. Thomas Home from 1978 to 1984. The Sisters of the Destitutes – a Congregation founded in Kerala, began their services at St. Thomas Home for the Aged and St.Camillus dispensary in 1984. They left in 2001; since then the Sisters of Maria Auxilium are continuing this much needed service to our abandoned Aged brethren.

Presently there are 80 residents; forty men and forty women. Majority of them are abandoned-elderly people above 65 of age. They have neither children nor relatives. Such elders are always on the increase and they consider a big blessing and fortune to have a place in this Home; where they receive the best of attention to grow gracefully and to merit the blessing of a peaceful death and a decent burial.
