Our founder , Blessed St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara

Blessed St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara was the co-founder and first prior-general of the Congregation of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) and of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Mother of Carmel.(CMC) Blessed Kuriakose Chavara was born on February 10, 1805, at Kainakary. Blessed Chavara was a trend-setter in the universalization of education and making it available to all sections of the society. He also took initiative in imparting quality education with formation in values so that not only the individuals grow holistically but also they become instruments in social mobility and social transformation. Carrying on this legacy, we also try to be trend-setters in education; for this, we have an educational policy in agreement with the national policy of the Church and in the spirit of our own CMI legacy, and implement it in all our educational institutions.
