St. Maria Goretti Public School

St. Maria Goretti School named after our passionist saint St. Maria Goretti, located in Nettoor, Ernakulam started on June 2003. It is an educational enterprise of the passionist sisters a religious congregation founded by Maria Magdalena. We consider education is an integral formation of the human person for the fulfilment of social and individual responsibility. And also education helps the children to enable the way of thinking and their lifestyles.


St. Maria Goretti (October 16, 1890 – July 6, 1902) is an Italian virgin-martyr of the Catholic Church, and one of the youngest canonizedsaints[1] She was born to a farming family. Her father died when she was nine, and they had to share a house with another family, the Serenellis. Maria took over household duties while her mother, brothers, and sister worked in the fields.

One afternoon, Alessandro, the Serenellis’ son, made sexual advances to her. When she refused to submit to him, he stabbed her fourteen times. She was taken to the hospital but she died forgiving him. He was arrested, convicted, and jailed. During imprisonment he repented. After 27 years he was released from prison, and visited her mother to beg forgiveness, which she granted. He later became a lay brother in a monastery, dying peacefully in 1970. She was beatified in 1947, and canonized in 1950.
