History

The Province of Pathanamthitta was erected by a decision of the 8th General Synaxis of the congregation of the Sisters of the Imitation of Christ held in the Generalate house at Kottayam in 1998 by bifurcating the province of Trivandrum. It was inaugurated on 29.07.1998. There were 114 professed sisters and 3 novices in the newly erected province. On 27th May 1998 the first Provincial Synaxis was convened at Bethany Convent Chengannoor and the Provincial election was conducted under the leadership of the Mother General, Mother Philomena S.I.C. Sister Vijaya S.I.C was elected as the first provincial superior. The first provincial body consisted of:

In the beginning, Bethany Convent at Mylapra was designated temporarily as the Provincial House. The pre-novitiate formation was at Chandanappally and Kudassanad. The first 3 novices continued their formation in the novitiate house at Trivandrum and subsequently Bethany Convent at Perunad was selected as the novitiate house. In February 1999, we bought a land with a house at Nannuvakadu, Pathanamthitta for the Provincial House. On 17th Sept 2005 the new building of the Provincial House was blessed by His Beatitude Moran Mor Cyril Baselios Catholicos. During these years there were five provincial synaxis. The provincials who lead this province were Sister Vijaya S.I.C (1998-2004), Sister Philomena S.I.C (2004-2007) and Sister Deepa S.I.C (2007-2010). Mother Sukrutha S.I.C is our present provincial superior.

The number of the professed sisters increased to 152 by 2010. The sisters of the Province do service in the Major Archdiocese of Trivandrum, diocese of Mavelikara and Pathanamthitta. The sisters also render their service outside Kerala in Bhopal, Culcutta and outside India in Germany, Italy, U.S.A, Ethiopia and South Africa.

The land of Pathanamthitta is a holy place for all the religious denominations especially for Christians. This is the holy land where two great forefathers, St. Thomas the Apostle of India and Mar Ivanios, the founder of the Malankara re-union movement left their footprints to be walked by their followers. The famous Ecumenical Church of St. Thomas at Nilackal as well as the Mundal Mala (the Darf Mountains) of Perunad where Mar Ivanios built his first Monastery belongs to the district of Pathanamthitta. Later the St. Thomas Christians in this part of Kerala experienced the boundless flow of divine blessings, upholding the ideals of the founder of the re-union movement, the Servant of God Mar Ivanios. Therefore, the Bethany Sisters who opted for the province of Pathanamthitta should be pledged to continue the dedicated work of our Apostle and our founder so as to give great joy to the entire world. It is our responsibility to continue the great work of witnessing Christ among the people here just as the Apostles who became, “His witness in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria and to the end of the world” (Acts 1:8).
