Description

HISTORY AND PRESENT ACTIVITIES

It was a decision of the first Provincial Synaxis to establish a house for our senior and sick confreres. It was a need of the time since we did not have a proper facility for the care of the sick confreres. Our members desired to have the facility built in a quiet place and not far from hospital. For that purpose we bought a plot of land near Mookkannoor, by the side of Angamaly-Mookkannoor road. The Ashram, with all necessary convenience for eight persons, was constructed. Vincentian Sisters from Paderborn, Germany made a substantial contribution to this project. The House was blessed on 2nd November 1996 by Mar Jacob Manathodath, the then Auxiliary Bishop of Ernakulam-Angamaly in the presence of Very Rev. Fr. Antony Plackal, the Superior General and Very Rev. Fr. George Kammattil, the Provincial Superior. Rev. Fr. Varghese Perimcheril was appointed the first superior of the house.
