Description

HISTORY AND PRESENT ACTIVITIES

Vincentian house at Thachanpara was established in the year 1977. For many years members of the house lived in the old house in the estate here making some modifications. We did not have a convenient Vincentian House here. Hence, we decided to construct a new Vincentian House and Rev. Fr. Cyriac Kunnel who was the estate manager supervised the construction and it was blessed on February 21, 2004, by Mar Jacob Manathodath, the Bishop of Palghat. The house provides pastoral assistance to the nearby Catholic families. Many come here for the daily Mass.

Once Thachanpara estate was known for Vanila cultivation. In the year 2012, the Provincial administration decided to shift the Pre-Novitiate course to Thachanpara and students of St. Joseph Province also was here. The course was conducted here till it was shifted to Christu Nivas Thrikkakara in the academic year 2014-2015.
