Welcome to

Welcome to MSJ Generalate

Our religious congregation is the fruit of the deep God experience and the merciful love of our revered founder father, servant of God Msgr. Joseph Panjikaran (1888-1949) towards the sick and the suffering.  Msgr. Panjikaran who was the director of the propagation of Faith in the Vicariate of Ernakulam had taken keen interest in his life to proclaim the Gospel to the poor. A zealous pastor that he was, Msgr. Panjikaran had directly seen the pain, the hardships and the loneliness of the sick and the poor during his many pastoral visits. It was his deep conviction that the church had the responsibility to provide medical service to these people. Realizing that the proclamation of the Gospel and all other activities towards the conversion of people are to be supported by genuine acts of charity, our revered founder decided to reach the good news of salvation to the people through the care of the sick. As a result of his earnest prayer
