Chinnapa Madanu was consecrated as bishop by Bishop Peter Hickman of the Ecumenical Catholic Communion at the Catholic Apostolic Church in North America's (CACINA's) St. Theresa Parish in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Sunday, January 23, 2022.  CACINA bishops Tony Green and Michael Theogene were co-consecrators.

Bishop Madanu was elected as bishop by more than 600 parishioners in India.  Bishop Madanu will serve as Bishop of India, a new independent Catholic jurisdiction.  CACINA expects to enter into an inter-communion agreement with Bishop Madanu and his newly formed jurisdiction at a later date.
 
We pray for Bishop Madanu and the people of faith in his jurisdiction in India.

Bishop Tony Green has been awarded a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Liberty University after three years of study and research.  Bishop Green’s thesis is entitled “Ethical Decision Making in Nursing Practice: The Impact on Moral Distress.”

Bishop Green said, “I attended Liberty University to show that very different theological ways of thinking and being can collaborate and learn together.  Liberty University’s doctoral program was very rigorous and my progressive scholarly research was honored and supported.  My experience shows that we can disagree but respect one another while we learn.

Congratulations to Bishop Green on this accomplishment.
