Pope Francis established a new eparchy Jan. 4, 2016 to serve the multitude of Indian Catholics in Canada and the United States by elevating its status.

Bishop Thomas Mar Eusebius Naickamparambil was named head of the Eparchy of St. Mary, Queen of Peace. The eparchy's faith and customs date back to the first century in India, where the Church celebrates the West Syrian rite.
