The Archdiocese of Changanacherry was divided and the new diocese of Kanjirappally was established on 26th February in 1977.Soon after the new diocese was set up, necessary steps were taken to bifurcate CMC unit Kanjirappally from the Mother Province Changanacherry. It was the felt need of the time, to establish convents to reach to the God’s people in different parishes of high range and low range.
