Our Founder

Servant of God

B. A. Thomas OMI

He was born in 1986 on Jan 26th. He was born a sickly child baptized on the same day, but lived 78 years by the Divine Providence. He was asked by the Bishop of Jaffna Sri Lanka to start the Rosarian Contemplative Congregation. He was known for his sanctity and love for the poor. He founded Contemplative Congregation for men and women. His beatification cause is in the Roman Phase. It was the unanimous opinion of all who had contact with Fr. Thomas,OMI, that he was a man of God, a saint. These included besides his own spiritual children, members of the Rosarian Congregations of men and women, also outsiders, Christians as well as non-Christians.

Dear Friends, I am very glad to introduce the website of the Rosarians; The First Indigenous Contemplative Congregation of the Rosarians in Asia. This was an inspiration from the Holy Spirit and a Divine commission from the Supreme Pontiff Pius XI in the year 1926 through his encyclical letter “Rerum Eclesiaeinviting the mission lands to begin the Indigenous Religious Congregations. A holy priest, Servant of God B.A. Thomas OMI founded this humble congregation to support the Mission of Evangelization with the Power of Prayer on 2nd February 1928 at Tholagatty, in the Diocese of Jaffna, Sri Lanka. It is marching towards it’s centenary with 25 monasteries, 19 Monasteries in India, 6 in Sri Lanka, one in Canada and one is USA.  We welcome everyone to join us in the mission of evangelization through Prayer, especially around-clock adoration with the recital of the Holy Rosary.

Help for the Priestly Formation
Aged and Sickly

The Congregation of the Rosarians is an indigenous Contemplative Congregation, that engages only in the Mission of Prayer and Retreat. As they do not have any source of income they depend on Divine Providence through donors to cater to the formation of their young Religious who will be the future priests and their sickly and aged members who need medical care.
