The dream of the Diocese of Kandanad West has come to a reality as H. H. Baselios Marthoma Didymus I, the then Catholicos of the Malankara Orthodox Church laid the foundation stone for a Diocese Centre Building Complex on 10th December 2006 at Kolenchery St. Peter's & St. Paul's Orthodox Catholicate Centre of the Diocese. The building complex has total plinth area of 25,000 sqft being built as a five storeyed edifice. The ground floor consists of a big Bookshop of the Diocese, Diocesan office, office of the Mar Pachomios Charitable Society, office of Prathibha Charitable Trust, Office of all the Spiritual Organizations of the Diocese, a library and reading room, and five rooms for a shopping complex. The first floor consists of 6 Resident double rooms for rent together with the office of the Diocesan Metropolitan and twelve office rooms for rent. The second, third and the forth floor are together used for two big auditoriums. First is an air-conditioned mini auditorium which can accommodate 2000 persons for a meeting Plus 6 resident double rooms for rent. The top floor is a bigger auditorium which can accommodate 3000 persons for a meeting. The total construction cost will be 4 crores. The Building we hope to be inaugurated in 2012 also as a moment of Catholicate Centenary project of the Malankara Orthodox Church.
