Founded in 10.05.1990
In 1983, Fr. Zacharias James Kurupacheril, a diocesan priest established a “Boys’ Town” for orphan and destitute boys in Murukkady which led to the formation of an informal religious society, called the “Monks of Angel Valley”, in 1987.
In May 1990, the community was affilated as a pre-foundation of the Missionary Benedictines of St. Ottilien and in 1994 it was canonically raised as “Domus Religiosa”.
On the 1st January 2001 this community was erected as dependent priory.
The Community runs a big Retreat Center, a Boys-Town, a Homeo clinia and farm.
