Bishop's Message

We see the vision being realized by the grace of God and the active, prayerful support of God’s people both in India and abroad in the following ways during 2007 – 2012. Effective Episcopal ministry with sound theological and ministerial formation and training through retreats, workshops, conferences, visits and exposure to the Diocesan Pastors, Evangelists and Teachers. Spirituality has been regained through morning devotions, Bible Studies, and Prayers at the Bishop’s Office and Diocesan Office. New Parsonages and Churches are being built. Old Churches and Parsonages are being renovated. Professionalism has been introduced in the Diocesan administration with integrity and honesty. Transparency and accountability have been introduced into the administration. Financial resources are being generated both in India and abroad. Women are being empowered through retreats, workshops and other conferences. Child Care Ministry has been revived by opening 5 Day Care Centers, One Child Focus Community Development Programme supported by the KNH/CCCYC, and CSI Synod and others. Bishop Solomon Junior College has been re-opened as Private Management College. Mission Partnership relations have been started with Kyung Nam Presbytery in South Korea and with St. Philips Episcopal Church, Frisco, Dallas USA and others are being explored.
