Hospital Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis

Sister M. Rita Edakkoottathil

General Councilor

I am Sister M. Rita Edakkoottathil. I was born in 1964 in the Federal State of Kerala in Southern India.

I joined the Congregation in 1983 and made my first Profession in 1988. I served our community as Formator, in Regional leadership and as a teacher.

I had the privilege of visiting and working with the sisters of our International Congregation.   In 2012 General Chapter, I was elected to the General council and in 2018 re-elected.

I try to live the Franciscan values of conversion, humility and poverty and strive to bring Christ’s healing presence to the needy.

To God and to the Congregation I am grateful for the opportunity to gain valuable experiences of living with international community.
