Welcome To St.John's Cathedral Nazareth
With profound gratitude and thankfulness to our God, Jesus Christ, we are pleased to present this submission.
As per the history, 23 years older than the Church of South India, Tirunelveli Diocese the biggest and the 2nd oldest among the Dioceses in C.S.I. - was itself a product of a small-scale experiment in Church Union. In 1896 Tirunelveli had become a bishopric. The C.M.S. & S.P.G. merger in Tirunelveli was a signification forerunner of the Church Union in South India. The Diocese thus formed was carved out of the then sprawling Madras Diocese to include the revenue Districts of Tirunelveli.
