A Brief History
On our journey towards expanding the ministry of proclaiming the Good News, a piece of agricultural land was purchased at Kengeri, near Bangaloru city in the state of Karnadaka. In view of a centre for youth animation and spiritual counseling and guidance, the foundation stone laid for the building on 19th August 2010 by Rev. Fr. SibyPeedikayil, then Provincial Superior of St. Paul Province. Rev. Fr. Ashy Palimattam was appointed to look after the construction work and the first superior of the community.
In a period of seven months, the construction works were completed and on 26th February 2011, the house was blessed and inaugurated by His Grace Most Rev. Bernard Morres, the Archbishop of Bangalore and Rev. Fr. SibyPeedikayil, the Provincial Superior. The house was named Good News Bhavan. Rev. Fr. Joseph Kurialassery is a member of the community. Rev. Frs. JobyNadayil, Binoy MT., served as superiors of Good News Bhavan after Rev. Fr. Ashy Palimattam. Foundation stone was laid on 02nd March 2016 for the new block by Rev. Fr. Joseph Kurialassery in the presence of Rev. Frs. Saji Sebastian, the provincial, Selvan Lazar, Binoy M T and the Rector of the Roseminian House. The construction is on the way to completion and in a short while the blessing and inauguration of the new hall will be held.
