Founder

Most Rev S. A Aruliah

 
 

Most Rev. Dr. S. A. Aruliah, was the first bishop of the Cuddapah (Kadapa) Diocese. He was a very loving, kind, and compassionate father who toiled day and night for the spread of God’s kingdom. He had tremendous faith in the providence of God, even when everything seemed impossible. He was a man of prayer and had a special devotion to the Eucharistic Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. He loved and cared for his flock. He was a great missionary on fire with the love of God.

To uplift the poor and the neglected was always his concern. He worked hard for their well-being. He realized that development was possible only through education. He opened many schools and boarding homes for the education of the poor. He enjoyed the company of the children and had many enriching and challenging stories for them. He shared the simple homes and meals of the people on his pastoral visits.  He was a friend of all who met him.
