Last March 14th and 15th 2012, H.E. Mgr. Salvatore Pennacchio visited the Siro-Malabarese Diocese of Adilabad. It was the first visit of a Papal Representative to the “young” Diocese, founded 13 years ago in the Indian State of Andhra Pradesh. H.E. Mgr. Joseph Kunnath CMI, Bishop of the Diocese of Adilabad, together with local priests, warmly welcomed the Papal Nuncio.
After having celebrated the Holy Mass (Holy Qurbana) according to the siro-malabrese ritual, H.E. Mgr. Salvatore Pennacchio visited the Minor Seminary and many villages of the Diocese.
