Order of Carmelites

The Order of Carmelites has its presence in India since 1982. The first canonically erected house of the Order in India – Carmel Nivas was constructed at Karukadam In 1991. The carmelite foundation in India was made a region and it became a commissariat in 1993. In 1994 Carmel Sadan was erected at Chettupuzha and at present it serves as the provincial house. Indian Commissariat was officially declared an independent province by our former Prior General, Most Rev.Fr. Joseph Chalmers in 2007. Very Rev. Fr. Mathew Neendoor was appointed the first Prior Provincial of St. Thomas Province of India. Now St. Thomas Province is blessed with sevety-three Priests, twent-five students in simple vows, seven novices and thirty students in initial formation.Based on our Chrism-Prayer, Fraternity and Service, we serve the Church in India through retreat Preaching,teaching at various Educational institutes, and undertaking various Social activities at different centers.
