Annakutty (Saint Alphonsa's given name) entered their college in Bharananganam in the diocese of Palai, to attend seventh class, as an intern student, on the 24th of May 1927. The following year, on the 2nd of August 1928, Annakutty began her postulancy, taking the name of Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception in honour of St. Alphonsus Liguori, whose feast it was that day. She was clothed in the religious habit on the 19th of May 1930, during the first pastoral visit made to Bharananganam by the Bishop, Msgr. James Kalacherry.

During her time as a Franciscan, she endured many sufferings, and, as many a holy saint has done, she embraced them: "I feel that the Lord has destined me to be an oblation, a sacrifice of suffering... I consider a day in which I have not suffered as a day lost to me."

She died in 1946, was proclaimed blessed by Pope John Paul II in 1986, and was canonized in 2008. Read more in the Vatican's press release from Alphonsa's canonization.
