The selfless dedication of Fr. Julius Larmey, S.J., ably assisted by Bro. Augustine Pereira, in teaching Catechism and propagating the Christian faith impressed the people of Panjampatti, specially the youth. Among them four young girls, Visuvasam, Viagammal, Annammal, and Savariammal made a promise of celibacy and dedicated themselves to the service of God.Bro. Augustine was ordained a priest in Tuticorin in 1900 and then he became the Director of the small community of our sisters.
