  1. Though he was a headmaster in school, he had more used his expertise and firm belief in God to the orthodox church for his whole life. With his guidance and training, children in Cheriyanadu and Puliyoor areas had faith in God and grown in their life to the great extent . While he was the Vicar at St:George Orthodox Church, Cheriyanadu, he had been influenced by even Non-christian communities by his charity work through the Christian youth.( In the news reports, it is missed to add that he was the Vicar of St:George orthodox church , Cheriyanadu and St. George orthodox Church in Puliyoor in 1970s).
    Let us keep him in our prayers.
