The primary intention of starting a house at Kunnamkulam, where the local community is mostly Jacobites was to create an opportunity for the ecumenical contact with the separated brethren. St. Thomas Monastery, Pavarty was mainly responsible for its foundation in 1945. Fr. John Ukken has been of special help for acquiring a plot for a Catholic institution in this largely Jacobite centre. The house was canonically erected in 1948.
The Good Shepherd Technical Institute which was started at Elthuruth in 1946, was shifted here in 1948. It is giving training in Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering to a large number of students, most of whom are from the local Jacobite Community and this has been the apostolate here .
In 1978 I.T.C was started in the Good Shepherd Technical Institute which gives job-oriented training to many students.
Good Shepherd CMI School(CBSE) was started In 2012 to give quality education to the children at Kunnamkulam.
