History of the South Kerala Province St. Joseph's OCD

On 8th July 1967, our mother province Malabar was raised to the status of a province by the General Chapter. In the course of time, there were internal problems regarding the manner of vocation promotion. For a long time, it remained as a mere wishful dream of the Latin friars of the Malabar province to have the freedom to promote more candidates of the Latin rite. There were 20 members of the Latin Rite in the Province. On 11th march 1980, ten members petitioned for separation from the Malabar Province. Fr.Angel Mary Chemmayath, Fr.Andrew Fernandez, Fr.Vincent, Fr. Antony Pullichira, Fr.Clement D’Cruz, Fr.Wilfred Miranda), Bro.Francis Koduveliparambil, Bro.Policarp, Bro. GeorgePandaraparambil and deacon (Deacon Elias Kalathil On 10th April 1981 Very. Rev. Fr. Philip Sainz de Baranda, the former Prior General of our Order effected a visible internal arrangement based on the rite and region of the members and they were separated and placed in the Varapuzha monastery.  The first aspirants’ house was built at St. Andrews in the Archdiocese of Trivandrum in 1984. A Novitiate was opened on 8th December, 1983 at St.Joseph’s Monastery, Varapuzha The Novitiate was eventually shifted to Perumkulam in the Diocese of Punalur on 4th December 1989.  The Varapuzha Unit was raised to the status of Provincial Delegation on December 28, 1987. In March 1996 St.Joseph’s Philosophy College at Ambalapuzha was inaugurated. On 29th May 1996, the General Delegation was raised to a General Commissariat. On 29th May 2001 the Commissariat of South Kerala was made a full-fledged Province by the General Definitory. Statistics Now we have altogether 25 houses, both erected and non - erected in our Province : 11 in Kerala, 10 in the Regional vicariate of West bengal and North East, 2 in Germany and 2 iItlay. There are 102 Priests, 14 solemnly professed brothers, eight novices, and 103 candidates in various stages of formations. We have 38 secular Carmel units consisting of 3000 members approximately and we also have started a Carmel youth wing to impart our Charism to the youth. We have one retreat center and a V-guard unit for empowering women. Mission The Regional Vicariate of West Bengal and North East is a part of South Kerala Province. This mission that was opened in 1998 was declared a Regional Vicariate on 27th October 2008. At present together with ten religious houses, we have four schools, six orphanages (three for boys, three for girls), four parishes and two tailoring centers within the jurisdiction of the Regional Vicariate.

BRIEF HISTORY

By the beginning of the 20th century, Salesian missionaries started their mission work in the Northeastern region of India. The Tribals of this land responded enthusiastically to the Gospel with the result that we have abundance Christians in North-East India. With the view of establishing a Christian culture and further spread of the Gospel many of the dioceses encouraged new foundations. The Carmelite presence was wholeheartedly encouraged and welcomed by His Grace Archbishop Dominic Jala in his diocese, thus in 2002, the then Provincial Rev. Fr. Bernardine M. Louis OCD sent the students of theology to Sacred Heart College run by the Salesians, with the hope of eventually starting a community in Shillong. In the following year Rev. Fr. Bernardine M. Louis OCD bought a plot of land near the NEHU (University). The foundation stone for the new house was laid by His Grace Most Rev. Dominic Jala, the Archbishop of Shillong, on 19th of March 2007. On the same occasion a small temporary house nearby the site was blessed and Fr Shibu and Fr. Prathas started residing over there for the purpose of looking after the construction works. The new Theology College building LumKarmel Monastery was blessed and inaugurated on in 2008. Now we have 10 Theology Students under formation and they are frequenting the classes at Oriens Regional Seminary for theology.

              Some sixteen kilometers away from Shillong, near the famous river – Bara Pani lays Nongsder, a place sought after by nature lovers. The land is precious for many reasons; here is the centre of Indian Space Service of Meghalaya, the ICAR (Indian Council for Agricultural Research), the Bara Pani Dam, MSEB, etc. It was on 2nd March 2006 Fr. Wilfred bought some ten acres of land here with the view of starting a Prayer Centre and Novitiate House for the West Bengal and Northeastern region. A building was already constructed in the land in view of some spiritual programmes for the people of God.
