With the lockdown of Covid 19, Mount St Joseph community along with its Loyola Educational Institutions and Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in the campus have been doing a wonderful work of charity. Our target group has been the daily wage earners and stranded migrant workers from various parts of Karnataka and the rest of India.
The whole Jesuit community, both young and senior members have fully immersed into this charitable work. The Loyola College building has been turned into a hub of grocery distribution centre. Students of our Degree College and IHMC parish volunteers are helping us in packing things. There are also Catholic religious Nuns and Priests in the neighbourhood who have joined us in reaching out these groceries to the needy and deserving people in our vicinity.
