Responding to the invitation of Rt. Rev.Bishop Sarath Chandra Nayak ,bishop of Berhampur , Odisha we started a house at Antharba on 16th April 2008. It is a forest area were people are very poor but have strong desire to know more about Jesus and His kingdom. Considering the poor health condition of that locality we started a clinic too. The pioneers were Rev.Sr. Reny and Sr.Philsy. Three sisters are dedicatedly serving in this remote area. For any needs of sisters have to reach Berhampur which is 95 km away from the convent.  There are nearly 45 villages in this parish. Sisters have to walk many kms through the forests and hills to reach the villages.  

Recently we started K.G section here. Nearly 30 students are there. Rev.Sr.Reny( Superior), Sr.Rose and Sr.Nivedita are the present members of this community.
