- I am just curious to know where exactly is the HQ of kandanad diocese
Is it at Kandanad or Kadakkanad.In early part of the article it says
it is at Kandanad and in the later part it says it is at Kadakkand.As
a person familiar with both places ,I want to say these are two different places.As far as my understanding goes the new HQ is at Kadakkand.The author should have used Kadamattom in place of Kadakkanad as Kadakkanad is little known place Otherwise it is a excellent article.
I wish all the best to Kandanad diocese and its dynamic leader Evanios thirumeni

- Sholomo to Mr. Varghese.
As you rightly said the present HQ of Kandanadu Diocese is at
Kadakkanad near Peruvammoozhi / Kadamattom where an old age Home
named Ashwasabhavan also is about to complete.
Our beloved Thirumeni's able leadership and prayers of the people
have lead us to have the new Diocesan HQ at Kandanadu itself.
Various offices will start functioning from there.
The author intended to highlight that under Thirumeni's leadership,
Kandanadu Diocese is growing and the centers at various places are a
part of it.
Hope this clarifies your query.
In his love

- Hello Varghese,
Thank you for your query. Please read that article once more.
The new building is the Head Quarters of the diocese which is at
Kandanad in front of Kandanad church ( 'Thalappally' of Kandanad
The building at Kadakkanad, ( Near Kadmattam, Kolenchery ) is Bishop
House ( Aramana ). As I mentioned in my article, there an old age home named 'Aswasbhavan' also located in this same place. This area is named as Baselios Paulose II Centre. Here it located Bishop house,
Aswasbhavan and a small church ( Thirumeni's next aim to develop this
as a church ).
Sorry for the confusion. I think it cleared now.
If you are interested please visit the photos of both places on the
following links :

If you need any more clarification, please let me know.
Note : There is an update to my previous article. As per latest
information from Ivanios Thirumeni, Sri. Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, Home
Minister of Kerala Government also may be will attend the Head
Quarters consecration ceremony.
