Maria Ashram community is situated in the Diocese of Vijayawada, in Nuzvid in Krishna District in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The community was established in the year 2010 to provide an integral education to the needy children in and around the villages of Nuzvid town. The pioneering members of the community were Fr. Michael Palackathadathil, Fr. Varghese Munduvelil and Bro. Nannam Prem Kumar. The community is actively involved in the education of over thousand students in St. Mary’s High school. This is the second apostolic institution in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The students coming from the villages need more care and attention. And so the members of the community give our best to provide the best quality education to these students. We enable the students to develop their talents and skills to achieve their potential as human beings and members of the society. The Charism of our founder is realized among these students from the villages who are in need of a quality education.
