Kottapuram Bishop Dr Francis Kallarakkal was Saturday appointed new Archbishop of Verapoly Archdioceses

Kottapuram Bishop Dr Francis Kallarakkal was Saturday appointed new Archbishop of Verapoly Archdioceses.

The order by Pope Benedict XVI appointing Kallarakkal was read out simultaneously in Rome and Kochi.

As the church bells tolled, the order appointing the new Archbishop was read out by the Chancellor at a function at the Bishop's house here.

Kallarakkal is the 8th Archbishop of Verapoly and succeeds Archbishop Daniel Acharuparambil, who passed away on Oct 26 last year.
