Carmelites of Mary Immaculate
Since the Latin missionaries of the Order of Carmelites Discalced (O.C.D.) were guiding the Congregation started at Mannanam during its early period, Latin Carmelite tradition had influenced the congregation from the very outset. In 1860 the General Chapter of O.C.D. in Rome affiliated this new Religious Congregation of the Oriental Rite to itself and gave it the name T.O.C.D. (Third Order of Carmelites Discalced). It was granted Pontifical status in 1885.
The name of the Congregation was changed to C.M.I. (Carmelites of Mary Immaculate) with the approval of its revised Constitution by the Holy See in 1958. C.M.I. Congregation was given Pontifical Exemption in 1967.
