The Province of Trichy is one unit of the 15 Provinces of this big tree- Montfort Brothers of St.Gabriel.
South India was the mother Province. Due to the vastness of the Province a bifurcation was needed. A new administrative set up for the Province was "in response to the generally felt need for better animation, for encouraging local vocations aspirations and for designing collectively and fraternally planned growth and development for more relevant apostolic engagements".
