Invitation from the Bishop of Sultanpet Diocese

The Latin Catholic Diocese of Sultanpet, Palakkad, Kerala, was erected on 28th December 2013. This new diocese is divided mostly from the Diocese of Coimbatore (16 Parishes) and of Calicut (5 parishes). Rev. Peter Abir Antonisamy  is its first bishop. The Diocese has 25 Parishes and 23 priests at present. Malayalam and Tamil are the main languages used in the liturgy. This is completely a rural area and almost 98 percent of the population are agriculturists or agricultural labourers.
