THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The children of St. Joseph's Orphanage at Holy Angel's Convent Higher Secondary School in the city will move to a new swanky abode next month.

The school on Thursday inaugurated a new building dedicated to Foundress Mother Veronica in connection with her first death centenary.

The orphanage will accommodate around 70 children in the age group of 5 to 16 years.

"The hostel will have better facilities when compared to the existing one. It is our Christmas gift to the children," said Sister Louisa Francis, Principal of the school, while speaking at the inaugural ceremony.

The building was inaugurated by Cardinal Telesphore Ptoppo.
