History

The Provincial chapter of 1993 decided to open an ashramin the Archdiocese of Thrissur. Br. Jose Pullokaran was deputed to find a suitable site for the Friary. On 21 December 1994 a land of 5 acres belonging to two families, was purchased and registered in the name of the province. Mar Joseph Kundukulam of happy memory, gave oral permission to start a Friary in his diocese. On 14th June 1997 the new fraternity of San Damiano was  constituted and the foundation stone was laid for the newashram.

When Bishop Mar Jacob Thoomkuzhy became the Archbishop of Thrissur he proposed to take up a parish along with the ashram. After the necessary negotiations with the Archdiocese Parish was taken up. On 3rd May, 1998, celebration of Sunday mass for the people began; Mass for the people began; on 24th January, 1999 it was declared a quasi-parish.

On 10th June, 1999 His Grace Mar Jacob Thoomkuzhy, the Archbishop of Thrissur solemnly made it a full-fledged parish, and appointed Br. Jose Pullokaran the first Parish Priest of St. George Church, Kurumal.
