History

Introduction

The province of Bathery, the 3rd Province of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Imitation of the Christ (SIC) known as the Bethany Sisters was formed as a vice-province by a decree of the General Synaxis of the Congregation, held at its Generalate at Kottayam in April 1980, by dividing the Thiruvalla Province.

41 Sisters (33 finally professed, 8 temporarily professed, 2 novices who had completed the novitiate) opted for the vice-province and the 1st vice-provincial synaxis was held at Uppatty, the Nilgiris, Tamil Nadu on 28 & 29 June 1980, elected Sr. Nirmala SIC as vice-provincial, Srs. Stanislaus and Prisca as councilors and Sr. Agnus as Procurator.

The vice-province was officially inaugurated in a public function held at Sulthan Bathery on the 25th of July 1980.

The Beginnings

There were five Convents at the time of partition, these were: Kuppady, Uppatty, Pulickalody, Velamcode and Narangathodu. The Kuppady Convent functioned as the 1st vice- provincial house.

The relationship with the Diocese of Bathery

The diocese of Bathery was aheadly in active performance ever since the enthronement of His Grace the Most Rev. Dr. Cyril Mar Baselios OIC on 2nd February 1979. Before the starting of the vice-province, a team of Bethany Sisters from both Trivandrum and Thiruvalla provinces, had bean on the service of the diocese doing community development, social action, and pastoral mission under the leadership of Sr. Helena SIC (TVM) (Kannur Dt.) and Sr. Dr. Scholastica SIC (TLA) (Wayanad Dt.) The Bethany Sisters were pioneers in building up the diocese. The Sisters in regular convents helped the diocese to set up and upgrade educational institutions and catechetic mission. The community development sector team was instrumental in all round development and reaching out to the poor and weaker section of the population and the tribals.

The impact was tremendous both for the diocese and for the vice-province! In 1986 the vice province was raised to the status of province. Sr. Helena SIC was the 1st provincial of Bathery province.

In 2005, the province celebrated the silver jubilee giving due consideration to poor women and the ailing cancer patients under palliative care. In 2012, we are in the 32nd year of our existence.

The number of the professed Sisters increased to 158 by 2012. The sisters of the Province do service in the diocese of Bathery and Puthoor. The Sisters also render their service outside Kerala in Nashik, Bangalore and outside India in Germany, Italy, Israel, Ethiopia and South Africa.
