Welcome to Diocese of Warangal

After the bifurcation of Vijayawada Diocese, Hyderabad Diocese was left with the districts of Telangana region only. Let us restrict our view to only those that formed Warangal Diocese. The Hyderabad- Vijayawada Railway line work had brought a good number of Catholic employees to the main Railway junctions and stations like Kazipet, Dornakal and Khammam. The Baptism register kept at Kazipet reveals the presence of Catholic community there since 1887. It was a mixed community of Anglo-Indians, Telugus and Tamils, settled at the Kazipet Railway Junction. Between 1890 and 1930 a good number of Catholic families migrated from Guntur and other parts of Coastal Andhra to Telangana in search of cultivable land for their livelihood. They got settled wherever they found fertile black cotton soil. The early Missionaries helped these migrant traditional Catholic communities in their settlements and took care of their spiritual needs.
