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.
