I interact with my guests as much or as little as they desire. I am always happy to provide a guided tour of the local village.
Venerable Thomas Kurialacherry (January 14, 1873 – February 6, 1925) was a member of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, and was the first bishop, of what would become the Archdiocese of Changanassery. He also founded the Sisters of the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. In 1935, ten years after his death, his Cause of Canonisation was initiated giving him the title "Servant of God". On April 2, 2011, Pope Benedict XVI, in an audience with Cardinal Angelo Amato, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, approved (along with the advancement of many other sainthood causes) a statement saying that Bishop Kurialachery had lived a life of heroic virtue. This gave him the additional title of "Venerable"
