The Congregation acquired a few acres of land in 1991, on the western ghats of Kozhikode – Manathavady, for the purpose of recruiting candidates from Kerala. Considering the local needs we established a Home for the Elderly, a Clinic, a Home for the mentally challenged Patients and a Hostel. We provide also Palliative care. A small dairy farm is run and the land is being cultivated with local crops.
An Old Age Home is under Construction in Piravom and 2 Sisters are residing there overseeing the Project.
