Good Shepherd Convent Foundation – Pallavaram

In January 2001 the Province of India / Nepal was formed into three sectors. Our Sector was named as T.A. Sector comprising of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. To begin with, three sisters were assigned to the Sector Community with Sr. Philomenal Pillai as the Sector Co-ordinator. They stayed in the Nungambakkam community while they looked out for a proper place to serve as the Sector House.
With the help of Rev.Fr.Mark SDB and Rev.Fr.Lawrence Susai SDB and with the financial assistance of our Community in Chennai, we purchased a property with a house for Rs.30,00,000 (thirty lakhs 0nly) in Pallavaram which was under Madras Mylapore Diocese. On 29th September 2002 when the diocese was divided, our house came under Chengalpet Diocese. On 2nd October 2001 this house was blessed by Rev.Fr.Lawrence, the parish priest of St. Teresa’s Church,Nungambakkam and was named ‘Deepa Bhavan’. Sr. Bridget Paily cut the ribbon and opened the house to serve as the Administrative Centre for Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. The candidates from Tamil Nadu too stayed here and pursued their Higher Secondary Education.

Later a ‘TRUST’ was formed for the sector with the name “Good Shepherd Convent Foundation”.

The activities of the Trust are:
• Family visits and counselling
• Coaching classes for school going children and school drop outs
• Awareness Programme
• Nutrition Programme

After the formation of the New Province – Central East India/Nepal in November 2013, this House ceased to be a Sector House and continues the activities of the Trust. We hope to expand our ministries to serve the children, youth and women of this locality who are poor and vulnerable.
