Here is a brief write up sent by Sr Feliciana of the Poor Sisters of Our Lady about their ministry in St Augustine’s School in the early years.
In 1976 our sisters Cecelia Dmello, Irene Coelho and late sister Mary Furtado began teaching at St Augustine’s School.They taught there from 1976 to 1981.These sisters were staying at Jeevan Darshan Kendra,Giriz.
Sisters Claire Pereira,Magdalene Rebello,Judith Lemos,Feliciana Ferreira and Esperance Mesquita who also taught at St Augustine’s School ,stayed at Mary Magdalene Church – Mulgaon.
At present sisters Cecelia,Judith and Irene are residing at Holy Family Convent in Andheri.Sr Magdalene is at Poor Sisters of Our Lady Convent in Kandivili. Sister Feliciana is at Little Flower Convent in Thane
The PSOL sisters were very appreciative that St Augustine’s School gave them a chance to carry out their education ministry.
The brothers whom we collaborated with were brothers Miles,Gomes,Martin and Keane. They were incredibly helpful,cooperative,kind,loving and caring.
We extend our gratitude to the teaching,non teaching staff ,parents and students.It was a memorable experience of togetherness and family spirit. ( Sr Feliciana Ferreira PSOL)
