The healing ministry of Jesus is one of the most acknowledged and most controversial parts of His redemptive work. Jesus was genuinely moved out of compassion for the sick. Healing for the body is a part of the wonderful grace of God that brings salvation to the world.
Healing Ministry is said to be a Biblically based ministry that is taken as the churchs response to Christs appointment to preach the Gospel , meet people at the point of need &heal the sick.
As we continue the mission of Jesus ,each day thousands of people who come to us experience His healing through our hands . Sisters are involved in nursing ,paramedical services and teaching in different hospitals in Kerala , such as St. James Hospital Chalakudy , Carmel Hospital Ashokapuram , Jubilee Mission Hospital Thrissur , Amala Hospital Thrissur and Lissy Hospital Ernakulam . We see that Jesus is still the same yesterday , today and forever and is still healing the sick & old . In response to His divine call sisters are doing dedicated service in abroad such as Germany , Italy , Rome , America & Africa .

Besides , sisters find out the helpless and financially deprived patients and provide necessary support for the treatment for kidney disease, heart disease, dialysis ,major surgery and chemotherapy.
Awareness Programmes in school and institutions
Learning is crucial for development and one of the most powerful tools to nurture a healthy lifestyle.

By conducting these programmes our aim to attain proper knowledge about the importance of moral life, nutrition , hygiene and healthy lifestyle which will help to prevent unwelcoming disease. Also we concentrate on sex education ,teenage and adolescent problems on school going children .
Not all changes are improvements but all improvements involve change changing the systems that deliver care has thus become the cornerstone of the movement that is now referred to as medical quality improvement .
