May God Almighty bless them for their service to Christ and His Holy Church.

Attached to this kalpana is an official listing of all the ministries and departments of our diocese with the current office bearers as well as those who are being appointed effective October 01, 2015 or will be continuing their term. We pray for God’s blessings, wisdom, and guidance to be upon these individuals as they take upon these positions of leadership. May the Holy Spirit guide them to be servant leaders and lead them to a fruitful ministry in His vineyard.


We seek the whole-hearted prayers, support, and cooperation of all the clergy and faithful of our diocese and pray that the ministry of our diocese will continue to grow in the coming years.
