Our History

The Indian mission was the dream and desire of mother Alba Pescatori, who was then the Superior General of the Congregation. The dream was happily realized by her staunch faith in God and preserving prayer and sacrifice. A group of 4 Venerini Sisters led by Sr.Lea Altigieri landed in India and they were accommodated by the Sisters of Charity in Calicut. With the help of late Bishop Rt.Rev. Aldo Maria Patroni and Rev.Fr.Joseph Vergotini S.J, the sisters could find a small plot with a house which belonged to late.Mr.John Valander. On 12 October 1974 the sisters took possession of the house. Knowing the need of the people they decided to open a school. The first school in India was opened on 1st June 1975 with students Yadev and Yswanth.Rev. Sr. Lourdes Pereira was appointed as the first Head Mistress who led the school in its beginning with indomitable strength of will and spirit of dedication.

On receiving the mandate to head the Venerini Institution in India, Rev.Mother Piera Silvestrini left her native country and landed in Cheruvannur on 26 September 1975.She was at the helm of Venerini as manager and Provincial Superior.
