After obtaining pontifical status on 12th June 1999, under the stewardship of Mother Regina Singareddy, the Congregation has decided to extend its services in Italy. Given the opportunity, the thought of going to our founder’s birth place opened up new hopes and dreams to find out the family roots, Seminary and Missionary formation of Servant of God Silvio Pasquali in the PIME Institute (Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions) and the historical background of our Congregation. Thus the first community of CSA was opened in Roseto, Italy on 16th January 2002 at the request of Don Pietro, the parish priest of the Assumption of Blessed Virgin Mary parish, Roseto with three sisters: Sr. T. Gnanamma, Sr. Y. Vijaya and Sr. P. Prasanna who became the pioneers of Italian Mission. Besides helping in the Parish Nursery School, Sisters assist in the Pastoral activities of the Parish.
The second community was opened on 1st November 2005 in Ceremenate, Como Diocese, North Italy. It is here, with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and with the help of Fr. Victorio, the parish priest of Cermenate, God opened the doors to step into the diocese of Cremona, our founder’s birth place. Accepting the invitation of Most Rev. Dante Lafranconi, the Bishop of Cremona, the Congregation has opened its third Community at Cremona on November 13th 2009 with three sisters to assist in the Refugee home (Casa Degli Accoglienza). The house shelters and takes care of more than 300 refugees who come away from their homelands due to persecution and deprivation of human rights. Majority of them are between the age group of 18-30 years and this house is a centre of protection and hope that gives them new life and direction.
Another Community ‘House of Hope’ (Casa Della Speranza) was opened on 8th October 2011 to take care of HIV patients managed by the Diocese of Cremona. Two Nurse Sisters take care of the patients besides regular visiting Doctors, Nurses and care takers. Later, three more communities were opened in northern Italy one in Manera, Como Diocese on 6th September, 2015 and second in Inveruno, Milan Diocese on 2nd February, 2016 and the third community at Cremona on 8th September 2019. The sisters of this community help frail mothers and provide education to their children.
We found the documentary evidences of our Father Founder in the PIME Archives, Milan in May 2013 and the information pertaining to his childhood, seminary records and the places of his priestly ministry as an young priest and his achievements in his birth place, Cremona. They were awe inspiring and took us back to the memories of our founder who lived a holy and challenging life here in India.
