    I am confused probably its because i am weak in this subject, In CSI itself how many bishops and hows the bishop’s are assigned… Achen if you can give a fair idea… Thanks…

    • Cyril,
      CSI is constituted of twenty two dioceses and each diocese has a Bishop…hence CSI altogether has 22 bishops…In Kerala we have 4 dioceses; South Kerala, Central Kerala, North Kerala and East Kerala. Hope I have answered your question.

  4. Cyril Thomas says:

    You certainly did Achen… Sweet and Simple… Well there is more question developed which i will ask to you latter…. Thanks….
