All the great events have a humble beginning. The story of CFIC in India is also not very different. It was the fruit of providential coincidence between the dreams of Fr.Giovanni Cazzaniga, the superior general of CFIC in the year 1973, for an opening in India and the desire of Fr.Mathew Chemmarapally,a diocesan priest ,to join a religious congregation.

In the month of September 1969 Fr.Mathew met two CFIC religious, Fr.Peter Broghi and Bro. Romeo Simoni at Cheruvandor, Kottayam. By end of the year he received an invitation from the superior General and he presented it to his Bishop. After a long silence he was permitted to join the congregation .Thus Fr.
