SHORT HISTORY OF THE FOUNDATION IN INDIA
The foundation of the Dominican Contemplative Nuns in India began in the year 2001 by the cloistered Dominican Nuns in Northern Spain, the Monastery of the Incarnation, in Cangas de Narcea. As decided by the council of monastery  Sr. Maria Luz, was given the charge of the new foundation.
After this trip, the idea arose very strongly in her community of establishing in India the first house of the contemplative nuns’ branch of the Dominican Order.
There were several conversations and agreements with the Master of the Order, Fr.Carlos Aspiroz Costa, with Fr, Manuel Merten, Promoter of the Nuns  of the Order, and with Fr.Quirico Pedregosa, Assistant to the Master for the Asia Pacific Region of the Order.

After a positive vote of the Council and Chapter of the nun’s community in Spain, the same Sr.Maria Luz came again to India in 2002, accompanied by an Indian nun, one of the many who have entered Dominican convents in Spain in recent years. Three girls joined them to try out their way of life, living for a year in a rented house in Aluva, Kerala. In the following year, they moved to the diocese of Quilon where they would be permitted to receive candidates from the Syro-Malabar Rite. They stayed in rented quarters for more than two years, and began to build a convent in Keralapuram at the end of 2003.

Although this is not yet the monastery they hope to construct, they occupied it in March of 2005 and began to live their contemplative life with tranquility, in a pleasant and functional building.
