Sr. Christella CMC (General Council3)

Sr. Christella was born, on March 17, 1934 to Adv. Varkey Moothedan and Mrs. Mary of Ernakulam Basilica Parish. Her  father desired to make her an advocate, but the ways of the Lord was different. She had her schooling in St. Marys CGHSS, Ernakulam and her degree in St. Teresas College, Ernakulam. Being interested in teaching she did her B.Ed from St. Josephs Training College, Ernakulam. Soon she was employed as a teacher in Arakuzha School and later in a U.P school at Kanjoor. She also served as the Headmistress there. Acquaintances with the religious sisters and life with them sowed in her the seeds of religious vocation. She joined in CMC in 1961 as a response to the divine call of our Lord. The Lord made her  a powerful instrument in His Hands to lead his children. Sister was chosen as the General Councillor in 1984 and she served the term till 1990. She was also given the responsibility of the Provincial Councillor for three terms. She had also rendered service as the Sister Superior of St. James Convent, Poonithura and Carmel Convent,  Asokapuram. Sister Celebrated her 50 fruitful years in Carmel in 2011.

She is a soul filled with the light of Christ, on fire with love for Him and burning with one desire: to quench His thirst for love and for souls.
