In the year 2007 we purchased a property consisting of 19 acres of land and an old house. This is 400 kilometres away from Kappadu in the north of Kerala, within the parish of Mandapam and in the Archdiocese of Thalasserry. A small monastery was built there in the year 2009, with all the necessary conveniences for a community of fifteen to twenty. At present there are two monks and 6 postulants staying there. The monks are Fr. Jose Mylammoottil, who is the superior and the man in charge of the postulants and Fr. Manu Oorppankaattil who in charge of the estate.
