Erected on 24-05-2000
The 16th General Synaxis decided to erect two provinces in Bethany Ashram, namely Bethany Navajeevan Province and Navajyothy Province in 1998. Navajyothy province was inaugurated at Thiruvalla Bethany Ashram on 26th September 2000 by Arch Bishop Cyril Mar Baselios OIC. The members of the province serve in the Archdiocese of Thiruvalla, in the dioceses of Bathery, Moovattupuzha, Puttur and in the mission centers of ETRI, namely Mumbai-Pune region.
