Mumbai, Sep. 7. The Sisters of Maria Auxilium (SMA) was founded by Father M. C. Antony SDB through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in the year 1976. The spirit of the Salesians is seen at work in the SMA Congregation through their Founder.Don Bosco had the dream of creating a vast movement of groups to work for the poor and abandoned.
The SMA Congregation serves the poor and especially the girls and women from the under privileged sections of society. It had a humble beginning but with a noble cause. They are well established within a short span of 43 years with 134 professed members in the Congregation who are in 33 presences serving the Church. Sister Josephine Selvi SMA is the Superior General of the Congregation who coordinates with the collaboration of four more Sisters which make up the SMA General Council.

The Rector Major was felicitated by the Superior General along with the General Council members. There were also the lay collaborators FSMA (Friends of Sisters of Maria Auxilium) to welcome the Rector Major.
The Rector Major n addressed the Sisters in which he acknowledged that they possess the Spirit of Don Bosco and they are loved by the SMA General Council for their work and enthusiasm.
