The Society of Sisters of St. Anne is a Pontifical Congregation. It was chiefly founded for the empowerment of the powerless, the poor and the marginalized. This vision of the Congregation springs from the life and work of the Foundress Thatipathri Gnanamma.
The sensitivity to the cry of the poor and creative response to the signs of the times defines the core identity of the Congregation. This drives the Sisters to engage themselves in liberative, empowering and life giving mission for the marginalized involving in many ministries - social, spiritual, cultural, pastoral, medical, educational - that manifest in concrete actions the word of God.
