Annai Ashram

The Archbishop of Chennai-Mylapore Most. Rev. Dr. Arulappa, who had already two convents of the Rosarian sisters in his diocese, wanted that Rosarians monks should also come to his diocese. The Archbishop was so eager to have the Rosarians in his diocese for perpetual Eucharistic adoration. Hence he met Rev. Fr. C. Bernard CR, the Prior General and requested him to start a Rosarian Monastery in his diocese. His invitation was willingly accepted by Rev. Fr. C. Bernard and consequently on 30th May, 1978, Fr. Francis, Bro Swaminather and the Regent Bro. James were sent as pioneers to start the new Ashram.

By the grace of God and the maternal guidance and protection of the Blessed Mother Mary on 7th October, 1978, on the feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, the new building of the Rosarians monks was inaugurated and blessed by the Archbishop of Chennai – Mylapore. This ashram was dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes. This house serves as an aspirants house for candidates from Tamil Nadu and recently in 2022 under the guidance of the General Council, the Postulancy was shifted from Vimalagiri Ashram to Annai Ashram. This house also serves the spiritual and material need of many who come in contact with the Rosarians. We also support our Rosarian Sisters at R.N. Kandigai for Daily Mass and other spiritual support.
