The St. Anthony’s Orphanage Mission was established on Dec. 25, 2001, to provide financial help for the care and education of 180 orphaned children at the St. Anthony’s Children’s Home, Nagercoil, TN, India. In this orphanage, deserted and orphaned children from infants to 22 years are cared for by members of the Congregation of Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. All financial contributions are tax deductible through the Mission Office, Diocese of Erie. Since the mission is run by volunteers, there are no overhead costs, and 100% of contributions are used for orphan welfare programs.
Our goal is to support the cost of care and education for the orphan children at St. Anthony’s Children’s Home through regular financial contributions. The mission is committed to using 100% of the tax-deductible contributions for orphan welfare programs.
