About Bethany Ashram and the Order of the Imitation of Christ (OIC)

Bethany Ashram, founded by Fr. P.T. Geevarghese Panickaruveettiil OIC (later Archbishop Mar Ivanios) on August 15, 1919, integrates the monastic ideals of the Christian East with Indian Sannyasam. Known for its austere lifestyle, intense prayer, and apostolic activities, Bethany Ashram became the cradle of the historic Reunion Movement with the Catholic Church in 1930. In 1966, the congregation achieved Pontifical status, and in 2000, it was divided into two provinces: Bethany Navajeevan and Bethany Navajyothy.
