Christu Jyothi Bhavan , Karara
In response to the earnest request of the parish priest Rev.Fr.Xavier Vattayil and the parishioners of Karara to CMC provincial Palakkad ,to construct a convent near the parish church.And was blessed by Mar Jacob Manathodath,Bishop ofPalakkad on 25th Sep. 1998 and was given the name 'Christu Jyothi Bhavan'. Bishop affirmed on this occasion that the convent must be Christu Jyothi shedding christ's rays of light attracting the people towards the christ.
Sisters started visiting houses to know their needs. In the light of the information received a clinic was started on 11th feb 1999, a doctor and two nurses of the St.Peter's Hospital Kookkampalayam were arranged to come to the clinic weekly,examine patients and give medicines freely.Again at the request of the people a nursery was started in 2001.Character formation ,academic formation and above all faith formation are the main objectives.
Besides co-operating with the parish priest in the activities of the parish, sisters visit the houses regularly and try to solve the problems of the families. Many come to the convent with their problem seeking counselling and prayers and return in peace.Thus Christu Jyothi is a lamp placed on the summit of the attappady hills sedding the light of christ all around.
