History

It was Bishop George Alappat who invited us and gave us permission to open a house at Thrissur. The plot of land for the Ashram was given to us by Chev. Injodikaran Iyyappan at a very nominal price and he also helped us substantially towards the construction of our Chapel.

The foundation stone of the chapel was laid on 27th Feb., 1955 and on 14th Sept., 1958 the chapel was blessed and the altar consecrated by His Excellency George Alappat. The friary and the chapel were built by Br. Athanasius and Br. Gerard. Br. Gilbert, Br. Samuel, Br. Jeremias, Br. Cosmos and Br. Thomas Kalappura were the other members who joined them.

In 1961, the friary was constituted a study house of Philosophy. To house the students, a large extension was put up by Br. Gerard and it was blessed on 31st May, 1961. From then on it was the house of Philosophy and in 1972 it was declared one of the common study houses (Philosophy) of the four Indian Jurisdictions.

It ceased to be a common study house of the Indian Jurisdictions from the scholastic year 1981 1982. From 1st July, 1981 it started functioning as the combined Philosophate and Theologate of St. Joseph Province, Kerala. But Theology was later shifted to St. Francis Theological College, Thellakom, Kottayam in 1986.

With the bifurcation of St. Joseph Province into two in 1999, the administration and management of Calvary Philosophical College fell into the hands of St. Thomas Province, Kerala.However it continues to be serving the three jurisdictions of the Syro Malabar Rite in Kerala. provinces imparting Phiolosophical training to thier students.
