The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth has launched a project to make half its members in South Asia computer literate this year. “We are making computer education for our sisters mandatory from this year,” Sister Sangeetha Ayithamattam, who heads the congregation in the region, told yesterday.

“We’ve now had to make it compulsory since many didn’t bother to learn the technology,” she added.

The congregation has already introduced computer and Internet services in all but one of its 43 houses in the province that covers India and Nepal.

Total computer literacy among Catholic Religious people is necessary for the Church to fulfill its mission in the modern world writes Brother Mani Mekkunnel, national secretary of the Conference of Religious India.
