Convent and the Church of the St. John of God

Positioned to the east of the tower of St. Augustine it is a simple looking building constructed in the commencement of the 18th century. The convent was discarded in 1835. The Society of the Misericordia engaged it for some time.

From 1844 onwards, it was used as a dwelling for chaplains, confessors and others employed on behalf of the nuns of St. Monica. The roof of the church was removed in 1850. The present roof was built in recent times. In Old Goa, built in 1685, right next to St Augustine, the church is dedicated to Our Lady of Good Success.

It gradually declined in importance until 1834 when the building was bought by the nuns of St Monica to be used as residence for their chaplains and confessors. It is comparatively simple in style and was completely restored by the Portuguese just before they were expelled from Goa. Franciscan nuns who run an Old Age Home now inhabit the church and convent.
