Pope Francis has created a new eparchy and a new apostolic exarchate for the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church in India. The new Eparchy of St. John Chrysostom of Gurgaon (near New Delhi) will cover all of northern India. The new Apostolic Exarchate of St. Ephrem of Khadki (near Pune in Maharashtra) will cover all of southern India outside the "proper territory" of the Church (which remains Kerala and parts of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka).

Bishop Jacob Mar Barnabas Aerath, O.I.C., will be the first Bishop of St. John Chrysostom of Gurgaon. Bishop Thomas Mar Anthonios Valiyavilayil, O.I.C., will be the first Apostolic Exarch of St. Ephrem of Khadki.

This is important news because it means that, even though the "proper territory" of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church remains the same, all Syro-Malankara Catholics everywhere in India will now have their own Syro-Malankara Catholic hierarchs.

Axioi! Axioi! Axioi!
