Rt. Rev. Anthonymuthu

The Most Rev. Bishop Anthonymuthu

The Fourth Director of the Congregation (1977-1981)

After bishop Anthonymuthu was consecrated as the bishop of Vellore, a new page was opened in the life and mission of the sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. He upgraded the Pious Association of the sisters to the higher level of Diocesan Pious Association. Under him the mission and the vision of the Congregation grew into new heights. Day by day it spreads its roots in different places like Athipet, Susainagar etc. Bishop Anthonymuthu shows special interest in the formation of the sisters. Educational mission, Evangelization, service to the abandoned, building up grass-root groups etc became the prime concerns of the sisters. With the blessings of the then Madras-Mylapore Archbishop, Most Rev. Arulappa, he helped the sisters to begin new missionary activities in the capital city of Tamilnadu, Chennai. During this time the Congregation had its glorious beginning and moved quickly towards becoming a Diocesan Congregation.
