  • ST.Gemma Matriculation School
    Activitiesarea: ARANI, VELLORE, INDIA
    Slogan: SERVE THE POOR
    Vision: Passionists and their mission Passionists are a religious congregation founded by St. Paul of the Cross in 1720 in Italy. The mission of the Passionist is to proclaim the crucified love of Christ and also to work among the crucified of today. Now the Passionists are involved in different ministries around 57 countries in the world. Our ministries are: Retreat ministry, Parish Missions, education and working among the marginalized in the society.
    ESTABLISHMENT OF RANDHAM MISSIONPassionist established their mission in Randham Korattur, Tamilnadu, in 1996. It is a remote village, 20 kms from Arni and 65 kms from ARANI, VELLORE, 140 kms from Chennai. There are not enough transport facilities or medical facilities for these people in the village. In spite of all this, we have taken this parish which has 11 small mission stations. All the people in these villages are daily wage workers in the agricultural fields. We are working among the scheduled castes in the villages.
    Mission: PASSIONIST AND THEIR MISSION IN RANDHAM In our Mission Parish Randham, with all our sub stations we have 1047 Christians and 3000 Hindus. Our ministries reach out to both the Christian and Hindu communities. We are involved in religious activities, medical care, cow programme, milk society, forming small men and women groups for self developments, building homes for the poorest in the villages and educating the poor children in and around the villages.
    Click here for History of Passionist in India and the Rabdgan Mission
    COW PROGRAMME Most of our villagers are working in the field as daily wage earners. Since they do not have a regular income, we have started this cow programme which gives a monthly income. It works like this: We give a loan of no interest, to purchase a milking cow. They repay their loan in 10 months by selling the milk to our milk society. Once the loan is repaid, the cow belongs to them and the loan is given to another needy family in the village. In the past six years, we have given more than 360 families in our villages both Catholic and Hindu communities.
    MILK SOCIETYWe also have a milk society which collects more than 600 liters of milk everyday and sold to the milk factory. They pay us and we pay the people according to the measure of milk that is poured to us.
    FORMATION OF GROUPSWe have formed many different 'Groups' for self growth. We have Five Farmers Society, Five Women's Society, Washer men and Women Society and St. Vincent de Paul Society, kolping sangam, balar sangam which helps them to save money on a regular basis and also gives them loans.
    GEMMA MATRICULATION SCHOOLWhen Passionists came to the Mission Parish Randham Korattur, most of the children were not in school, rather they were looking after sheep and cows. We felt the need to give an education to these poor children. So we started a school giving free education. Most of these children's parents are not educated.
    Testimonial: School has been run without any support from the government, individuals or funding agencies to date.
