St.Kuriakose ALias Chavara

Connecting Hearts Since 1996

Celebrate with Chavaramatrimony.com - 25 Blessed years of Connecting Hearts since 1996. We are glad to have been propagating the teachings and vision of St. Chavara who envisaged the creation of “good families” equal to the heavenly kingdom. Over the past two and a half decades, we have been unifying families in Holy Matrimony with more than 2 Lakhs successful marriages through our services rendered from 26 branches spread across India. Looking back, we owe our success and journey till this silver jubilee to our clientele spread across the globe. Our customers, our torch bearers who have been a constant support and inspiration to push ourselves forward to providing quality and updated matrimonial services. Taking this opportunity to voice our sincere gratitude and heartfelt appreciation for standing by us throughout these years.

The Journey

The bygone years were not a bed of roses, yet we forged ahead of other players in spite of various challenges and stressors that came our way. By the Grace of the Almighty, the visionary zeal of the CMI Congregation and above all our own customers who were our torch-bearers helped us in our journey. Through all adversities, we have been moving ahead with more vigor and enthusiasm, with our committed and dedicated team of professionals.


In 1996, when we founded this matrimonial service in the name of Chavara Family Welfare Centre with Rev. Fr. Job Myladiyil CMI, as Director, there were many who mocked us stating it’s a broker’s job, commenting “Parish Priest turned Matchmaker”. Even the customers were skeptical and refused to give their photos for profile due to fear of morphing etc.. People where apprehensive and doubtful about this. Initially, interested customers used to visit our office, register to view the photos of suitable matches from the photo album. Still we had to face criticism from all spheres as the Kerala Catholic Church instrumental in Charitable and Educational initiatives, suddenly shifting to a totally different sphere; turning into “brokers” was looked upon questioningly. News spread with different perception and including a leading North Indian Hindi Newspaper covered the purpose of the noble venture of uniting the youth in a more spiritual and emotional bonding of marriage. NDTV had a story in 2012 applauding the services rendered by Chavaramatrimony in facilitating a platform where people could find their soul mate. It was with the intention of doing away with the unwanted interventions of mediators, brokers and commission agents in the matrimonial scenario. In 1996, a brave decision taken with a futuristic outlook by Rev. Fr. Job and the CMI Congregation has led to what we are today. We have come a long way from then, now our customers visit our offices for registration and they are keen to upload their pictures from their own phones. Many are excited to find their partner via our Digital Magazine on their mobiles from the comfort of their homes, at their finger-tips. Technology and Internet era has transformed our lives and today we stand strong, with 26 branches, spread all over India, with a staff strength of 100 dedicated personnel ever-willing to serve our clientele spread across the globe.
