Blessing of Perpetual Help Nivas (Teachers’ Block)
A house is made of brick and mortar, but home is made by the people who live there.

Carmelgiri, a monastery established on a far land of the state of Gulbarga to sow the seeds of the Good news of Christ witnessed a full-fledged joy on the blessed day of the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary by inaugurating ‘Perpetual Help Nivas’ – a residential home for the teachers. Having an illustrious school that provides state of the art education to the poor and backward people of the society, there developed a great necessity of having a residential house for the teachers. Since, the school is situated in a remote village called Kadaganchi and qualified teachers are unavailable in the vicinity, the residence was very much needed to recruit the teachers from other districts and make them feel comfortable. The providential blessing came through the family of Fr. Walter Lobo, a conventual of the community wherein Mr. Anand Pinto and Mrs Meryl Lobo (niece of Fr Walter) came forward to generously patronize the edifice for the perusal of the school. Despite the pandemic slowing down the construction of the house, it was a great blessing to inaugurate the house on the solemnity of our Mother to whom the house is dedicated as ‘Perpetual Help Nivas’.

The inauguration was held following a high solemn mass at 6: 30 pm which was celebrated by Fr. Ligoury Crasta, the superior of the house and preached by Fr. Sandeep Goveas. The teachers rendered their voices to add to the solemnity of the day. After the mass, everyone was ushered to the residential block. Br. Prithesh Crasta welcomed the gathering and invited Fr. Walter to bless the house. Fr. Walter Lobo did the honors of blessing the house. After the blessing, Fr. Ligoury thanked the gathering. Special thanks were offered to the Provincial, the Contractor Wasim, supervisor Noor, the domestic staff for the cleaning the house and all the teachers. The event was attended by the staff of the school along with some guests from the Central University of Kalaburagi (CUK). Following the inauguration everyone partook in the solemn dinner prepared by the teachers!
