Juan Jyothi Ashram Ayroor is located on the southern bank of Chalakudy River which is the boundary between the districts of Ernakulam and Trichur. so it on the northern most part of the Archdiocese of Varapuzha. The foundation stone was laid by Rev. br. Leo Thyparambil on 8-9-1991, the year of his golden jubilee and the fourth death centenary of St. john of the cross. the building was completed and then blessed by Dr. Cornelius elinjikal Archbishop of Varapuzha on 12-9-1992. as we had no study house for philosophy, it was intended for the students of both philosophy and theology. In 1992 when a territorial division was made between our province and the province of Manjummel, though this house is in the territory of Manjummel, remains in our province.
