Our Founder, St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara was born at Kainakary, in Kerala. He laid foundation for all the modern and progressive fields of activities to which the congregation is committed at present. He lived a life of prayer and commitment to the society. He was also a great social reformer, a great orator, an administrator and ventured into many humanitarian activities in his life-time. He is the forerunner in the field of education in Kerala. It is from his life of adventure, we draw the inspiration to carry on the task of imparting wisdom to the generations to come.
