The provincial chapter of 1990 decided to start a hermitage according to the rule of St. Francis. This ashram was blessed on 23rd May, 1993. Later they added a small chapel for the sake of Catholics in the neighborhood…..The friars who wish to spend time in prayer and contemplation come here. This friary is on the bank of the river and amidst a thick forest. They have about three acres of land cultivated. Many people come for confessions and counseling. Young and old friars live together…..they are 5 friars who are also available for the local ministry of preaching and confessions.
