Ashram J.X.P. is the cradle of our Vice Province, our first community residence and the minor seminary in India, started in 1981.
Our seminary is named after our own St. Gabriel, the patron of the youth. This community caters to the candidates from both Latin and Syrian Rite. The beginners have classes at the Ashram and the Pre- University students attend their classes at St. Joseph’s college, Cochin. The community gathers everyday for the Divine Office, Meditation, Holy Eucharist, Evening Prayer, Rosary, and adoration. Novena to St Gabriel is prayed every Wednesday and every Saturday Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help is promoted. The community observes a full day Eucharistic Adoration on the first Friday of the moth and Way of the Cross every Friday. Prayer and Worship help us to be rooted in Christ Crucified, and holds us together as a Community of Brothers. We are a formation community and that remains our primary focus.
