In the year 2009 we purchased a property consisting of 20 acres of rubber plantation at a place called Elamdesam within the parish of Vettimattam in the diocese of Kothamangalam. The site is 50 kilometres away from Kappadu. A new monastery is blessed in the year 2014 and the community settled there on July 11th, on the Feast of St. Benedict. The community consists of three monks: Fr. Jose Vaippammadam, Fr Bibin Pothanamuzhy and Fr. Libins Anathil. Fr. Jose, the superior is taking care of the estate and also he is the financial administrator of the house. Fr Bibin is is incharge of the big cattle farm and Fr.  is mainly in charge of the 3rd year candidates
