Ramon Nubiola, S.J. had a great desire to have a group of sisters to work among the Varlis of Talasari especially to uplift the women. The community of 4 sisters from Zaroli was transferred to Talasari who came by bollock cart on 17th November 1950. This community is situated in Vadoli, Talasari Dt. Palghar, Maharashtra 401606. The Sisters opened a dispensary in January 1953.
