Description

HISTORY AND PRESENT ACTIVITIES

Vincentian House Balesugiri was in the diocese of Tellicherry until the establishment of the diocese of Mananthavady in 1973. Hence the Vincentian Congregation wanted to establish a House in Tellicherry diocese and the result is Vincentian House, Edathotty. It was founded in the year 1974. The pioneering works for the house and chapel and was done by Rev. Fr. Varghese Chakkungal. The house and the Chapel were constructed under his supervision.

De Paul College was established in the year 1981, under the able leadership of Rev. Fr. Sebastian Mappilaparmbil. The first batch comprised of 92 students. The computer academy was started at the time of Rev. Fr. John Kodiamkunnel. During the tenure of Rev. Fr. Sijo Vempilly VC as Principal we started the Mahatma Gandhi University off campus center and we constructed a new college building. It increased the number of our students here. Another milestone in the history of Edathotty, De Paul College is that we got affiliation with Kannur University as De Paul Arts Science and College. Now we have 1400 students along with 45 faculty members.

The chapel of this house was erected as a parish and entrusted to us on 21st May 1998. St. Vincent de Paul is the patron of this Church. It continued to be used as the parish Church till the consecration of new Church built in the land of the Parish by Rev. Fr. Antony Thekkineth, the then parish priest in 2012.
