Dear  Fathers,  Brothers  and  Sisters,

As  we  know  the  Holy  Father  Pope  Francis  has  appointed Most  Rev.  Dr.  Stephen  Antony  Pillai  as  the  Bishop  of Tuticorin  Diocese.  This  was  announced  by  our  Bishop  Most Rev.  Dr.  Soundararaju  Periyanayagam  in  the  Cathedral Church  on  17  January  2019.  It  is  a  joy  for  the  diocese  that one   of   our   Priests   is   elevated   to   Episcopacy.   His consecration  will  be  in  Tuticorin  on  Sunday,  24  February 2019  in  the  evening.  In  the  name  of  our  beloved  Bishop, priests,  religious  and  people  of  Vellore  diocese  we  wish him  all  success  in  his  Episcopal  ministry.  May  God  bless him  in  abundance  and  let  our  Mother  Mary  Help  of Christians  keep  him  in  her  loving  care  and  protection.
