This convent is situated near the Vedagiri parish church and Krumulloor, in Kanakkary Panchayath near Ettumanoor. The parish priest Fr. Berchumans Kunnumpurathu and parishioners felt the need of a convent there and they requested the provincial for this. Accordignly a plot of land was purchased and a small building was built in which 5 sisters could stay conveniently. Bishop Mar Joseph Pallickaprampil blessed it on 8th March 1999. That day itself sisters began to stay there. Sisters co-operate in all the activities of the parish. They took charge of the nursery school attached to the church. In order to enlarge the school a new building was made close to the convent and there started one English Medium Nursery and a Homeo Dispensary. In the beginning there were many patients coming to the dispensary. But later the number became less and so it was close down.
    As the convent building was very small it was enlarged and made more convenient. The sisters participate  sincerely    in all the activities of the parish and take leadership in teaching catechism, Mathrujyoti, family fellowship, Legion of Mary, CML, intercessory prayer group etc. By the marriage helping fund, many poor girls are helped during their marriage. The parishioners in all their needs come to this house for prayer and help.
