Today, the South Kerala Province which had a humble origin in the state of Kerala is stretched out to different states of India like West Bengal, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, and Mizoram through the determined and constant missionary efforts of its members. We too have our presence in countries like Germany and Italy where our friars render very praiseworthy service to different parishes. The Province at present is comprised of 96 priests and 17 solemnly professed religious. Among the 23 houses that belong to the Province 16 are erected and 7 are non-erected. We look after 16 parishes in our different centers at the request of respective local ordinaries. The Province runs 5 schools in the mission areas and has 4 boys’ homes and 3 girls’ homes under its custody of which one boys’ home is in Kerala. We are engaged in social service through two of our Social Service Centers and in spiritual ministry through our retreat centre at Bethsaida in Trivandrum, Kerala. Four Discalced Carmelite Cloistered convents, two in Kerala and two in West Bengal come under the jurisdiction of the South Kerala Province.
