Life sketch of Saint Mariam Thresia
Saint Mariam Thresia the Foundress of the Congregation of Holy Family was born on 26 April, 1876 in a small village called Puthenchira in Thrissur, the central district of Kerala. She was the third among the five children of Thomas Mankidian and Thanda Mangaly who had to depend upon the seasonal crops for their livelihood. The financial depression of the family due to the unfavourable weather and a bad crop, hit Thresia’s father and brother. Therefore, it became Thanda’s bounden duty to assume management of the family affairs. Being kind and gracious in nature, she fell on her knees and fervently prayed for God’s mercy, while that zealous and devout mother found time to teach her children, specially the curious Thresia, the lessons of religiosity. Thanda knew about the saints, martyrs and above all about Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life on the cross for the redemption of the mankind. Without much time, the seeds of faith and love took root in the heart of Thresia. Little Thresia began to teach the smaller children of her locality, the lessons she learnt from her mother. As a young girl, with a bowl filled with her own food she moved to the needy. As a nun she always served the sick, prepared the dying, extended healing to the wounded, preached the Gospel, educated the ignorant, received the unwanted, accepted the weak and liberated the oppressed. This unlettered but pure and refined girl from a village, blessed by God with a rare ingenious wisdom and mystic powers and with noble and charitable heart, founded the Congregation of Holy Family on 14 May 1914 which is now established far and wide approximately 2500 members involved in different ministries over 250 convents situated in India and abroad.

Congregation of Holy Family (CHF) Perspectives on Education
As a response to the divine call and realizing the urgent need of the time, the CHF, founded in 1914 stepped into the field of education in its inception itself. St. Mariam Thresia, the Foundress of the Congregation having drawn inspiration from the Lord and illumined by the divine wisdom, set out to start a school at Puthenchira in 1915. The very aim behind starting a school was to impart knowledge of God specially focusing the girls, the true foundations for future families. The growth of this apostolic field was amazing within the hundred years of life span, spreading over every nook and corner of this country and extending even beyond oceans, even to the Dark Continent. Now it is time to review, refresh and recharge from the founding spring and also to transform as per the ever-changing horizon of time and knowledge.
