The origin of St. Paul Franciscan Ashram, Kattappana in the eparchy of Idukki was as a filial house of Assisi Shanthi Kendra, Karukutty. The Friary is named after St. Paul, the apostle as a tribute to our Mother Province in Malta for their love and concern for our Mission since its establishment. The land consisting of nearly 3 acres was purchased and registered on 25 May 2006, and Friar Saviour Karamvelil was appointed to take care of the property and the house while serving as the assistant parish priest of St. Mary’s Church, Vellayamkudy to which parish we belong.

Friar Saviour started living there together with a regent, Friar Felix Kandathinkara on 03 July 2006. It took more than one year for the renovation of the old house and was inaugurated and blessed by Rev. Fr. Joseph Cilia OFMConv, the former Provincial Custos on01 September 2007 to commemorate the establishment of the Province of India. During the First Provincial Chapter of St. Maximilian Kolbe Province, Friar Shaji Kaniyaparambil was appointed as the Guardian of the new Friary of which the canonical establishment is dated on 25 January 2008
