Motto of the Congregation: - “Need of the time is the will of God.”

Holy Cross Institute of Management and Technology (HCIMT) is owned and managed by the International Catholic Women’s Religious congregation of Sisters of Mercy of the Holy Cross, a member institute to the registered society of Kerala Holy Cross Sisters Society. The congregation was founded in Switzerland in 1856 by a young dynamic visionary – Fr. Theodosius Florentini OFM Cap, who was titled by the Swiss Government as teacher of the youth and a great philanthropist. Mother Maria Theresa Scherer, the co- founder was a daring woman who was a synonym for totality of nobility, perseverance, and service mindedness to care for the poor and work for the progress of the society. She is known as the “Mother of the poor”. We serve the citizens of our country since 1894 in the fields of sustainable developments.
