Through the Parish Ministries, we are having our own faithful entrusted to us officially by the Church to take pastoral care of them and minister to them. This will enable us to impart our Franciscan Charism and spirituality through parish apostolate.
St. Francis Church at Nattakkal in the diocese of Tellicherrywas declared a parish 01 January 2003 and Fr. Manuel Manicompel was appointed as the first parish priest. The new Parish consisted of 108 families and is being carved out of the present parishes of Malom, Chully, Punnakunnu and Varakkad. This is our first parish in Kerala and the third of the Province after Dondapudi and Christianpet in Andhra Pradesh. Fr. Joseph Cilia, Provincial Custos on 03 July 2004, blessed the newly constructed Cemetery of the parish near the Ashram Church.
