About Lourdes Forane Trivandrum
The Vicariate of Kottayam was renamed Changanacherry, since this town had been the centre of Catholic activity, (eg: the Convocation of the Changanacherry Synod in 1888) and hence its headquarters had been shifted to Changanacherry in 1891. Indigenous bishops were appointed Vicars Apostolic to the new Sees. They were Mar Mathew Makil for Chan-ganacherry, Mar Louis Pazheparambil (from Changanacherry Vicariate) for Ernakulam and Mar John Menacherry for Thrissur.
