St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara
St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara (1805 -1871), the founder of Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI), the first indigenous religious order for men in India, is the beacon of our educational philosophy.

God’s divine call led him on the path of sanctity as he started his spiritual journey at the young age of thirteen. As an ordained priest in the church he went on the start the religious order for men – Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI). He later founded the indigenous religious order form women – Congregation of Mother of Carmel (CMC).
