Description

HISTORY AND PRESENT ACTIVITIES

According to the decision of the General Synaxis that a Province can establish houses abroad with the permission of the Superior General, the Marymatha Province asked permission to start a Vincentian House at Adelsried, Germany and it was granted. Written permission of the local Ordinary is needed to establish a religious house within the territory of a diocese. With the written permission of the Diocese of Augsburg, we established a Vincentian House in Adelsried in the year 1994, where Rev. Fr. Alex Thuruthikkatt was doing pastoral work. Rectory of the Catholic Parish in Kirchgasse 4, in Adelsried was used as the Vincentian House till 2002. In the Year 2002 Vincentian House was shifted to Mertingen. Rev. Fr. Alex Thuruthikkatt was transferred from Aldelsried to Mertingen and was appointed for parish ministry in the Catholic Church there. From that time onwards the Parish House in Mertingen, Fuggerstrasse 2, functions as the Vincentian House. All our Priests doing pastoral work in the Dioceses of Augsburg and Regensburg are members of this House. The Office of the Registered Society of our Congregation is also functioning in this House.
