Indian Church has an Apostolic foundation. Now with the establishment of
the Catholicate in 1912 the Orthodox Church has come to its own.
Although majority of the members of the church numbering about
2.5 million live in Kerala, they could be found now spread over not only
in all the different states of India, but also in all the continents
through out the world. There are a total of 21 Dioceses now, 15 of them
in Kerala and 6 of them outside Kerala ie Madras, Bombay, Calcutta,
Delhi, America and the Diocese of Canada-UK-Europe. Parishes outside
India, other than those in the two Dioceses of America and
Canada-UK-Euro.pe are included in the four Dioceses of Madras, Bombay,
Calcutta and Delhi.
