The Congregation of the sisters of the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament (SABS) was founded on 8th December 1908 at Champakulam in Kerala. It had its origin in the personal experience of the Eucharistic presence of the Servant of God Thomas Kurialacherry (1873-1925) the first bishop of Changanacherry.
He was fortunate indeed to have his priestly studies in Propaganda college Rome and to know of a Perpetual Adoration convent chapel near Propaganda College where after he became a constant visitor to spend time with the Eucharistic Lord in adoration.
The long hours spent before the Blessed Sacrament instilled in him a deep personal relationship with Jesus in the Eucharist and an ardent desire that the Holy Eucharist be known, loved and adored by all, always and everywhere. A strong desire gave him the impetus to found a Congregation for women to adore the Blessed Sacrament constantly (day and night). Following his ordination on 27 May 1899 he returned to Kerala as an enthusiastic young priest with the desire to begin the congregation.
