The people of Malabar Diocese had a very memorable event of the Grand finale of the bicentenary celebration of Basel Mission at Calicut on the 11th October 2015. The spectacular historic rally through the streets of Calicut city will never fade away from the minds the young and old. Our Moderator Most Rev. Dr. G. Dyvasirvadam, Officers of the Synod, Bishops, Leaders of the secular society and hundreds of Church members took part in the jubilant occasion.

Another mile stone in the history of Malabar Diocese is the election of the panel to select the first Shepherd to our Diocese on the 16th February 2016. By the Grace of God almighty Rt. Rev. Dr. Royce Manoj Victor was consecrated as the first bishop of the Diocese of Malabar on 17th May 2016 in a service held at the CSI Cathedral, Kozhikode.

The First Executive committee met on 20th May 2016 under the chairmanship of the new Bishop of the Diocese. In this meeting the Bishop stressed upon to give more emphasis on further extending missionary works which is our prime responsibility. Hence, the Diocese is now focusing on self- financing projects by each parish thus to complement the income of the Diocese. Our dream is to acquire our own mission field in the near future. The 19 sub-committees under the executive committee are functioning very well. Our Diocesan magazine "CSI Malabar Sabhamithram" is playing a vital role in efficient communication media. Very soon we will have own website and with various links which will be useful to all our members.

The Diocese has taken keen interest in enriching Sunday School, Youth fellowship and women's Fellowship through introducing various projects and educative sessions. Our ecological concern department is vigorously making awareness drive concentrating in all our parishes and in the neighbourhood. We are targeting for declaring all our 43 parishes as "Green Parishes" by the year 2018.

Most of our Basel Mission- built Churches are celebrating 150th to 175th years anniversaries. We are in the move to renovate /re build these churches in the coming years and so also the parsonages.

At present we are in the process of building our own Bishop's House in our office premises.

It is really amazing to see how God is leading ahead the new Diocese of Malabar, in the midst of various crises and confusions.

"And my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" [Philippians 4: 16:19].
