The erection of a new community in Andhra Pradesh is a boon to the young Indian Province, which is heading for its Silver Jubilee celebration of their presence in India. After long negotiation, Provincial Superior, Sr. J.X. Clara and her team were able to find a suitable place to anchor the new mission in Vijayawada Diocese, A.P. In Gannavaram, a house was rented for the community; the Sisters may collaborate with the De Monfort Brothers in their school. Msgr. M. Chinnappa, on behalf of the Bishop, extended a cordial welcome in the Diocese, and held the official inauguration and blessing on May 31st. In the Holy Eucharist presided by him, the Sisters were happy to have the prayerful support of the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Jayaraj, the Pallottine Fathers and Brothers from the nearby community, De Monfort Brothers, Peter Claver Sisters, some neighbours and well-wishers. During a small felicitation ceremony at the end of the Holy Mass Sr. Clara expressed deep appreciation for the people, who helped in various ways to materialise the new mission in Andhra Pradesh. The celebration ended with an agape meal. The new community was officially erected on 4th June when Sr. Clara appointed Sr. Bimla Barla as the Superior of the new community during the Holy Eucharist.
