One of the golden jubilee projects of the community at St Theresa’s convent was to start a hostel for the Catholic girls of our parish from mission stations. Hence the community started the Hostel on 06 April 2011 with three girls. One of from was Samalka and the other two from Panipat. They were housed in the second floor of the convent and Sr Priyanjali was the 1st hostel warden. In the year 2012 two more were came-in and the number rose to five. And in the year 2014 it became six and in the year 2016 the number increased to seven. The hostel does not have an independent building hence the hostellers are housed in one room of the convent. They have their study and other activities in the same room.

At present Sr Ophilia Lobo is the hostel warden. All the children belong to poor families. They are Catholics and are good in studies as well as their behaviour. Two girls study in 12th, two in 11th, one in 10th and two in 8th Std. They are grateful for the opportunity given to them for their education in this institution and for all the love, care and concern shown by the sisters. They freely talk to the sisters of the community. They are made to feel the part of the family. They are happy over here. They actively participate in all church activities and programmes.

On Wednesdays and Fridays they are given good night talk by the hostel warden. They regularly participate in the holy Eucharist and take active part in it. They pray the rosary in the evening and pray the night prayer each day. Before the night prayer the mass reading for the next day is read and a short reflection on the same is given to them. They take turns to read the Mass reading. They are instructed to read a short passage daily from the Bible before they begin their study.
