Mary Help of Christians - “Auxilium” Community Yangon, Myanmar
Short History of the House

In 1996 the Community of Anisakan in center-north of the country was depending from the Province of Calcutta.  The Provincial, Sr. Annie Thevarkunnel, in order to visit and accompany the newborn community, saw it necessary to purchase a small house in Yangon, then the capital of Myanmar, since that was the only entrance gate to the country. Since the personnel at that time was insufficient for erecting a community, two sisters were sent there to care for youth through language classes and for children through a small kindergarten. The house was also a welcoming place not only for Sisters coming from abroad but also for the Sisters coming from other houses for business, for visiting their families in the south or for medical attention.
For many years it was impossible to establish a community even with the increase of vocations in Myanmar because having opened the house of formation personnel was needed there. The canonical erection of a Community on the site came about on 31 May 2010. The house is dedicated to Our Lady Help of Christians: “Auxilium”.

The Mission of the community

The house is small and can offer little pastoral work inside. At present the mission of the community is as follows:

  • Production Center of Vestments, other Sacred linens with computer embroidery machines
  • Boarding a small group of girls whom the sisters help complete their studies and prepare for work. They are given human and Christian formation by the sisters every day during the week. They frequent outside schools and Centers.
  • Welcoming place for Sisters coming from abroad and from the other communities.
  • In HlaingThaYar parish outside Yangon, we are going to have family visits, Catechism classes to the young people and Christian formation to the mothers.
