The Vatican has cleared the canonisation process of Sister Alphonsa.
Pope Benedict XVI has approved the canonization on June 1 and Sister Alphonsa would be India's first Catholic saint.
"Our hearts are filled with joy as one of a member of our congregation is being elevated to sainthood," said Sister Gorethi, a nun from the order of Poor Clares.
Though no date have been mentioned, it is expected the Blessed Alphonsa would become Saint Alphonsa in 2008.
