Construction on the New Seminary Chapel in Kochin is Complete
The building of a new chapel in Kochin, India, on the site of our first Passionist mission which was founded during the 1980’s under the leadership of Fr. Walter Kaelin, C.P., has been completed. The chapel replaced an earlier structure that had decayed beyond restoration and could no longer be used safely.
The chapel grounds are part of Ashram JXP, the seminary which includes dormitories and classrooms for the 50 young men studying and living there currently. The chapel serves not only the Passionists and seminarians, but the local community of families as well. The chapel is octagonal in shape, and offers a quiet spiritual refuge amid the bustle of India’s life.
