Adorno Fathers In India

It was in 1993 Adorno Fathers started their mission in India. They opened their first house 'Adorno Ashram' at Mallikassery in the diocese of Palai. Rev. Fr. Mario Salon, then Superior General and General Council decided to begin communities in India. Rev. Fr. John Paul a zealous and dedicated missionary was the first superior and he guided the community until 2009. Many boys joined our Order and Order started flourishing. Then Rev. Fr. Thomas Barbona took charge as the Delegate of Superior General and Rev. Fr. Robin Mampallithadathil as the Superior. At present we have four houses in India - Adorno Seminary (Mallikassery, Kerala), Villa Santa Maria (Kiliyanthara, Kerala), Adorno Bhavan (Bangalore, Karnataka), Mission (Arunachal Pradesh).

Now these four houses belong to Santhom Indo-German Delegation. And the Central house is Adorno Bhavan, Bangalore. The Delegation Superior is Rev. Fr. Robin Mampallithadathil and Rev. Fr. Jaison Thadavanal, Rev. Fr. Benny Madathiparampil and Rev. Fr. Aneesh Koovalloor are the Councillors. And under their guidance we are on the path of growth.
