A religious order for women, having their Generalate in Kerala, India. Their St. Joseph’s Province in Kerala will own and manage San Jose Home. They will provide the personnel necessary for the daily running of the house, including medical support. Some of the ministries ASMI nuns are already involved: (pictures caring for the deaf, the blind, the sick and the elderly).












Their Mission

“We follow Jesus in the humble and the poor and radiate his compassionate love

in joyful service to the elderly, the sick, the needy, the poor, and all the people

overlooked in the society.”


Father Joseph Varickamackal

A priest from the Diocese of Kanjirapally, Kerala State, India was instrumental in initiating the San Jose Home Project. Father Joseph served in the United States for 19 years and returned to his home Diocese on June 30th, 2021 to continue his ministry there. Father Joseph is committed to continuing his financial support for this endeavor during the construction phase and into the future. He also plans to provide full time pastoral service as the facility’s Spiritual Director, without compensation, once the project begins serving the poor and elderly.

















Fr. Joseph already donated one acre and thirty-eight cents of land for the project (a part of it from his patrimony, and the remaining land recently purchased by him) to ASMI Religious Order. A major portion of Fr. Joseph’s retirement savings were spent for the purchase. Fr. Joseph is committed to continue his financial support during the construction stage and after.

Fr. Joseph plans to return to his home diocese in India in the near future to give active support in the construction stage itself, and when the institution starts and in full functioning, he plans to be its full-time resident chaplain, giving free service.
