St. Theresa’s Convent, Atmakur (1999)

Atmakur is a rural area. With an intention of educating the rural children, a school and Convent  started in the year 1999 with the help of Most Rev. Thumma Bala, the then Bishop of Warangal Diocese. Late Rev. Fr. Avito, OFM cap then parish priest of Atmakur took a lot of interest and risk in constructing the convent. In the same year St. Theresa’s E.M school was also started. The first members were Sr. Anitta Vadakkumoolayil, Sr. Genevieve, Sr. Tessy kuzhikkattu, Sr. Celin pampadyil and Sr. Linsa kuzhimannil. They also started free Tailoring centre for the school dropout girls. Sr. Mary Jose Vattapalath was the instrumental starting this centre. At present our sisters are actively participating in the parish ministry, village activities and teaching catechism in the parish and school.
