Be Prepare For a Great Human Being

Rev. Fr. Alex Chakkalayil, born as the sixth son of Chakkalayil Thommen and Thresia at Melukavumattom in Kottayam Dt on 29th January 1948 and joined the Seminary after his school education. He was active in the church since his Sunday school days. There were no priests in the families of his parents, still he wanted to be a priest. He studied philosophy and theology at Pontifical Seminary, Vadavathoor, and was ordained priest on 1st February, 1980 by H.B. Basselios Poulose II, Catholicose of the Malankara Jacobite Syrian Church. In 1989, he joined the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church and served as vicar in several churches of Kunnamkulam Diocese. In 2000, Fr. Alex Chakkalayil began Marymatha Boys Cottage for poor and helpless boys. It was in spite of adversities that he brought this boys cottage. His strong determination and boldness along with his belief in God led him to heights. Some magnanimous people were with him to go forward. He was a marvelous organizer and an ideal priest. His high thoughts always made him different from others. Formerly he brought up the destitute in his own house. He was with them sharing the same food and roof. He considered them as his own children. He was a man of enthusiasm, a true lover of nature and a good farmer. He was in the grip of Motor Neuron Disease for his last three years. He showed the endurance of Jesus Christ and Mother Mary in his sufferings and never complained. He was in his wheel chair to meet the visitors with his usual smile. He believed that God has given him ‘a ministry of being rather than a ministry of doing’.


On 1st May 2010, Fr. Alex was rushed to the Allied Hospital, Arthat with breathing and swallowing difficulty. He didn’t loose his memory till his last breath. He was 63. On May 6th 2010, Fr. Alex Chakkalayil departed us to begin his eternal life. Tearful farewell to Fr. Alex Chakkalayil The funeral of Fr. Alex Chakkalayil (63), one of the most respected and renowned priest in Kunnamkulam, who passed away on 6th May 2010, was held at St. Mary’s Orthodox Syrian Church, Arthat, Kunnamkulam, in the presence of H.B. Poulose Mar Milithios Metropolitan, Catholicose Designate of Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church and a large number of priests and faithful thousands. H.G. Joseph Mar Coorilos Valiya Metropolitan paid homage to the deceased priest. On request of a great number of his well-wishers, the body of Alexachen, was kept at various churches at Kunnamkulam. Everywhere a large number of faithful gathered to have a glimpse and bid farewell to their beloved Alexachen. He showed politeness and courtesy to all without differentiating the laity from clergy, the poor from the rich and the young from the old. By upholding the true faith and practices, he exhibited unwavering stand which every member of the Church should make a model. We who knew him will miss him greatly.

The Legacy of
Mary Matha Boys Cottage

In 1994, Fr. Alex Chakkalayil became the vicar of Mar Basselious Mar Gregorios Orthodox Syrian Church, Moolepat, Pengamuck, he was seriously ill. It was a period of agony and distress for him. In his extreme poverty he cried to God. He attended retreats and became strong in mind and in his ecstasy he enjoyed the presence of the Holy Spirit. He confessed before God and forgave his enemies. Amazingly Fr. Alex recovered his health. Some of the brothers from the retreat center predicted that he should start a home for the destitute. With this idea in mind but without economic sources to step forward, he wept in grief. He thought of fulfilling God’s wish. He continued his fasting and prayers.

At last Rev. Fr. C.V. Abraham, Pazhanji inaugurated the institution officially on 02-02-2000. Since this institution was a divine plan of God some generous people appointed by God came forward with help. Fr. Alex ever respected Saints and he has a special attachment to Virgin Mary and St. Joseph. It was from an august vision that he prefixed Boys Cottage to Marymatha i.e., Marymatha Boys Cottage.
