Claretian Provincial House, Karukutty is the second Claretian mission in the Arch-diocese of Ernakulam-Angamaly. The house was blessed on February 8, 2004 by Mar Thomas Chakyath, Auxiliary bishop of Ernakulam-Angamaly Archdiocese as a Social Animation Center of the Delegation. It was raised to the status of a residence on March 17, 2004 and was named as Claret House. It is located 100 meters away from the national highway between Ernakulam and Trissur.

The original intension of purchasing the land and property here was to start an English Medium School by investing the patrimony St Thomas Delegation has received during its formation into a major organism. The property was registered in March 2002. Meanwhile the Delegation decided to purchase an already established school run by the diocese of Kanjirappally at Kollamula. Therefore the idea of establishing a new school at Karukutty was dropped for the time being. Later it was decided to make Karukutty a center for social service. On July 27, 2003 Fr. George Chirakalpurayidam took charge as the first coordinator of this social animation center he was followed by Fr. Jose Kudakuthiyil. The First Provincial Chapter decided to shift the Provincial curia from Claret Bhavan Kuravilangad to Karukutti. Thus the Provincial House community began to stay here with Fr. Jose Pulinkunnel as the superior.
