Sisters of the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

The congregation of the Sisters of the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament had  its origin   in  the  personal  experience  of  the  Eucharistic  presence  of   Venerable  Mar Thomas  Kurialacherry  ( 1873 - 1925 )   an ardent  devotee  of  the Holy Eucharist.  The inner  call received  by  him  was  that  the  Lord  in  the  Blessed  Sacrament  must be known, loved and adored by all, always  and ever where.  He  pursued  this inspiration with courage, stability, and absolute trust and founded the Adoration Congregation in 1908. Mother Mary Chantal [Philomina Vallayil of  Champakulam, (1880-1972)] was  the co-foundress  and  first  member   of the  congregation. The  S. A. B. S. had its humble beginnings with five members i n  a  cowshed  on  29  January, 1908 at Edathua.  After a few days they shifted to a  boathouse near  St. George Church, Edathua.  When they completed on e year  of  probation,  they  were  given  the  veil  by  the  founder  on  8 December, 1908. The first convent building was constructed at  Champakulam and on 17 October, 1910 the aspirants  moved  to  the  new building which eventually became the   Mother   house   of   the   congregation .  It   was   providential   that    Fr.  Thomas Kurialacherry  became   the  Vicar  Apostolic   of  Changanacherry  in  1911.  After   his consecration as bishop on 10 December,  1911 the five aspirants were vested with the religious habit. The first members made their religious profession at St. Mary’s Church, Parel, Changanacherry on 18 March, 1916.


Development

True to the special charism of the founder , the congregation extended its field of apostolate to all the then existing  Syro-Malabar dioceses in Kerala as independent  units of the congregation under the Bishops concerned. They were unified under one Superior General on 15 September, 1963.  The  congregation  was raised to the Pontifical status by His Holiness Pope Paul VI on 11 February, 1968. Enthused by the spirit of the congregation to make the Eucharistic Lord known, loved and adored by all, the sisters extended their services to the states outside Kerala. It was in 1965 that they took up this challenge. The steady progress of the congregation made it possible to establish 4 Regions in 1986 in various parts of the country under the Provinces of Kerala. In 1998, five Vice Provinces were inaugurated in different parts of India. Now the SABS render their services in almost all the states in India through their various apostolates in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Kenya, Tanzania, Nepal, and the U.S.A. At present, the congregation has nearly 5000 sisters in 19 Provinces and 4 Regions. The general curia of the congregation operates from Cenacle, Aluva. A house of prayer is attached to this house, providing facilities to those members who wish to lead a life of prayer in solitude for a limited period .

Charism and Apostolate

The  charism of  the  S.A.B.S. is Eucharistic devotion. It was the desire of the founder to instil this devotion in every member of the congregation as well as in others, so that all would become  adorers of God  in spirit  and  truth.  We  are to pour out the divine mercy that we experience before the Blessed Sacrament to all whom we meet in the various  fields of apostolate.  Prime importance is given to Eucharistic  apostolate. Each day every  SABS  spends  at  least  an  hour  before the Blessed Sacrament praying for the salvation of souls, and in reparation for the sins of the world.  The  whole  congregation  as a single unit conducts continuous adoration, day and night, covering the whole year. The congregation has perpetual adoration chapels in various centres  in Kerala  and  in different parts of India. This enables us to share the Eucharistic love with our brethren and thus draw all to the table of the Eucharistic Lord. Besides Eucharistic Apostolate, the SABS extend their services in the fields of Education, Healing,  Social  welfare  and Missionary activities according to the needs of the time and place
