Snehagiri Missionary Sisters (SMS)

The Snehagiri Missionary Congregation is a Major Archie Episcopal Congregation in the Syro Malabar Church. Snehagiri- means "Calvary" it is the mountain of love. This idea has prompted us to take the name 'Snehagri'. The aim of Snehagiri Missionary Congregation is to do service to the Lord's people especially to the poor and the neglected ones, seeing the face of Christ in them abide by the call of Christ. Accordingly, old age homes, child care homes, homes for handi-caped and mentally challenged, caring for the sick, social and familial welfare services and such other apostolic activities are the apostolate of this congregation.

Sowed the seeds of compassion through the foundation of Snehagiri Missionary Sisters. A prophet of compassion. Affectionate father to the poor and neglected.
