Karunalaya – A New face of Mercy

It was our long cherished desire to start a safe haven (home for the aged and the sick) in our province. Fortunately in this Year of Mercy, responding to Pope Francis call generously with an action plan benefitting the poor and suffering and looking forward for the experience of opening our hearts to those living on the outer most fringes of society, we opened a shelter home at Komelelepetta in Rayagada. It was blessed by most. Rev. Dr. Aplinar Senapati, the Bishop of Rayagada on 25th June 2016.  Thus we hope to address the needs of the aged, abandoned & sick women through our shelter home by meeting their most immediate needs such as shelter, food, clothing, health care and rights to provide a happy stay to all the inmates of the home. Since it is being opened in this Holy Year of Mercy this home is named as ‘Karunalaya’. This is the first of its kind in our province.
