Description 


St.Peter'sConvent,Kookkampalayam

                                      St.Peter'sConvent,Kookkampalayam , the first CMC convent in Attappady was started on 17th January 1965. It was  blessed by Rev.Fr.JosephChungath.

                                                At a time of many challenges, CMC ventured with great  mission zeal to take up this mission to work for the growth of the people of God in this hill area where no development had stepped into. The initial challenges did not in anywaylessen the zeal of the sisters. The hard life of the sisters who hed to fight against mountain,forest cold etc was     mming with real mission spirit.During the early years the sisters worked in educational and medical fields.At present their apostolate is mainly education-St.Peter's High school.The sisters actively participate in parish activities and are involved in the  services of 'Sehion Retreat Centre'.
