St.Joseph’s Bhavan, Yernagudem (1989)

It was Rev. Fr. Jose Kaimalet the Founder of Heralds of Good news, who took the initiative to start a convent in Yernagudem, on the way to Rajamundry in West Godawari. St.Joseph’s Bhavan started in 1989 July 7th during the period of Rev. Mother Philo Pulikkapadavil the then provincial superior of Thalassery province. The first members who came to extend their service in the school were Sr. Vimala Mary Ariyappalli, Sr. Tessy kuzhikkattu and Sr. Elsy Elapunkal. St. Joseph’s E.M school is run by society of Heralds of Good News. Our sisters started to render their services not only in the school but also in the pastoral work like house visiting, village apostolate, teaching catechism for children etc.
