Last year all the three Provinces of Syro Malbar in Kerala had a very good number of Novices. They were around 35 and all of them could not be accommodated in one Novitiate House in St. Joseph so all the three provinces decided to divide the group. Pavanatma accepted one group and housed them in Kasargod. The friary was already ready and had to make some renovations. It is an ideal place as it is very much silent and quite place. There are good number of parishes around and majority of the people in the area are catholics.
