Introduction

The work of the Missionaries of the Faith in India began with the work of four Indian priests who, after having done their theological studies in Italy, returned and created a solid foundation for the Missionaries of the Faith in India.

The Bishop of the diocese of Eluru, HE Msgr. John MULAGADA, with the letter of 25 October 1989, welcomed the first Missionaries of the Faith in his diocese: Fr. Chacko MUTHOOTTIL, Fr. Kuriakose NADOOPARAMBIL, Fr. Joseph PATHIYIL and Fr. Maria Joji RAI. Thus was erected the first community of the Missionaries of the Faith in Eluru, India. On 15 August 1990, Fr. Maria Joji RAI, Superior of the Missionaries of the Faith in India, was appointed, based in the Shrine of Our Lady of Allipalli, Diocese of Eluru, Andhra Pradesh.  

The Mission of India was elevated as a Province on March 25, 2003. After 26 years of existence it was time to divide the one Province of India into two Provinces, the Province of St. Paul and the Province of St. Peter , to better administer the Congregation in its growth process. The two Provinces were erected on 29 June 2015 on the occasion of the feast of SS. Apostles Peter and Paul.

The Province of St. Paul , as a  territory , consists of two Indian states, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, and the Mission in Arunachal Pradesh

The permanent members of this province are 22 priests. There are also 39 seminarians in the various stages of formation before the novitiate.

The communities annexed to the parishes in this province are 5. The other communities annexed to the institutions belonging to this province are: two formation houses, a school and a shelter for children.

The formation of the members of the two Provinces from the moment of the novitiate onwards will be in common.
