The Crest of Christ Institute of Management, Lavasa

Founder

Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara

Early life

Kuriakose Elias Chavara was born on 10 February 1805 at Kainakary, Kerala in a Nasrani Christian family as the son of Iko (Kuriakose) Chavara and Mariam Thoppil. Nasranis are Saint Thomas Christians (also known as Syrian Christians) who were baptized by St. Thomas the Apostle in the First Century. The name Kuriakose is derived from the Syriac Aramaic name. He was baptized on 17t h February 1805 at St. Joseph's Syro-Malabar Church, Chennamkary.

In his childhood, Kuriakose attended the local village school. He entered the seminary in 1818 in Pallipuram where Palackal Thoma Malpan was the Rector. He was ordained a priest on 29t h November 1829 and celebrated first Holy Qurbana at St. Joseph's Syro-Malabar Church, Chennamkary.



Later life

Kuriakose Kathanar joined two other priests, Palackal Thoma Malpan and Porukara Thoma Kathanar to lead a monastic life. The name of the community they founded was Servants of Mary Immaculate . The foundation for the first Dayra at Mannanam was laid on 11 May 1831 by Porukara Thomas Kathanar. Palackal Malpan and Porukara Kathanar died in 1841 and 1846 respectively. On 8 December 1855, Kuriakose Kathanar and ten other priests took vows in the Carmelite tradition. He was nominated as the Prior General of Mannanam Dayra. The congregation became affiliated as a Third Order institute of the Order of Discalced Carmelites. From that point on they used the post nominal initials of T.O.C.D.

Social reformer

Kuriakose Kathanar was also a social reformer. Though he hailed from an upper caste Syrian Christian family, he played a major role in educating the people of the lower ranks of society. In 1846, Kuriakose Kathanar St. Joseph's Press at Mannanam, the third printing press in Kerala and the first press founded by a Malayali without the help of foreigners, published the first Malayalam daily Nasrani Deepika . He also started a school at Mannanam in the same year, and was responsible for introducing noon day meals in schools, a practice later adopted by the rulers of Travancore and then by the Indian government. In 1864, while he was serving as the Vicar General of Syrian Catholics, he ordered that a school must be founded along with every church (palli) which was successful in making free education available for everyone. Thus, schools in Kerala came to be known as ‘ Pallikudam .’

Service to the Church

Kuriakose Kathanar introduced retreat preaching for the laity for the first time in the Kerala Church. He popularised devotions and piety exercises such as rosary, way of the cross and eucharistic adoration. He was the Vicar General of Syrian Catholics in 1861 in order to counter the influence of Mar Thomas Rochos on Saint Thomas Christians.

Founder of CMI and CMC congregations

In cooperation with Palackal Thoma Malpan and Thoma Porukara, Kuriakose Kathanar founded an Indian religious congregation for men, now known as the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate. He believed that intellectual development and the education of women was the first step towards overall social welfare. He founded the Congregation of the Mother of Carmel, the first religious congregation for women in 1866.

Death

Kuriakose Kathanar died on 3 January 1871, aged 66, at Koonammavu. His mortal remains were transferred to St. Joseph's Syro-Malabar Dayra Church, Mannanam on 24 May 1889. His memorial is celebrated on 3 January as per the Syro-Malabar liturgical calendar.

CMI Education Policy

We, the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate, after the example of our founder Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara, consider education as essential to the growth and development of an individual for the fulfilment of his/her individual and social responsibilities.

Our Educational endeavours aim at forming leaders who are intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically integrated, physically healthy and socially acceptable; who will champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace and who are ever open to further growth.

The secret of the success of our educational institution is a community of teachers who are committed to their vocation, professionally competent, morally upright and who grow in the true vision of education.

We aspire towards creating a just human society where dignity of the human being is respected, where unjust structures are challenged, our cultural heritage preserved, and the poor and the marginalized are served.

Our institutions are open to all students irrespective of caste and creed; they are accepted and cherished as they are and are helped to grow in their cultural, social and religious traditions.

Our institutions have to be open to society at large by making their resources available for the ongoing education and informal teaching. For the realization of this CMI goal of education, we expect students, parents and teachers to share this vision and cooperate with us wholeheartedly.

Christ University Trust

Christ University Trust, the promoters of Christ Institute of Management (CIM), was established in July 2008 with the objective of providing quality education to equip the future of our nation. It has come into existence from the educational vision of Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) priests belonging to Catholic Church.
