Kiliyanthara

Villa Santa Maria

To begin a house in Malabar for Adorno Fathers was the great desire of the first members of Mallikassery. In order to realize this dream the Fathers were very attentive to every occasion they had to get sufficient informations about this project. Finally on 30th May 2010 Fr. Boban Madathiparampi and Fr. Baiju Kunnakkattu were sent to Malabar to begin a home of Adorno Fathers there. Together with them there were some students who were sent there to attend the philosophical classes in the Good Shepherd Major Seminary, Kunnoth. In the beginning we rented 2 small homes, one near the Kunnoth Forane Church, another one on the side of the main road. We stayed there almost two years. Then we had the fortune to have a ex- formation house of the diocese of Thalassery near the Major Seminary in rent. So the Adorno community moved from Kiliyanthara to Santhome Estate building, where the community stayed until the inauguration of our new home at Kiliyanthara.
On 29th June 2011 under the guidance of Fr. Thomas Barbona CRM, we acquired a land in Kiliyanthara. On 20th September 2012 Fr. Shinto Kanjirappallil CRM was appointed as the responsible of Adorno Community in Kiliyanthara. On 21st November 2013 after having the approval from the General Council, Fr. Robin Mampallithadathil CRM laid the foundation stone for the projected building of Adorno Fathers in Kiliyanthara. Then Fr. Baiju Kunnakkattu CRM was substituted by Fr. Shijo Chethimattathil CRM.
On 12th January 2015 the construction work was finished and the New home of Adorno Fathers was blessed by His Excellency Mar George Njaralakkattu, Bishop of Thalassery and inaugurated by Rev. Fr. Giulio Capetola CRM
