KOTTAYAM: Mor Severius Moses Gurgan the Primate of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Europe, whom the Malankara Orthodox Church had consecrated as a Metropolitan in 2007 has consecrated Ramban Fr. Varghese Mattathil as Metropolitan Mor Bartholomaos Joseph at St Gabriel Syrian Orthodox Church in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, United States on March 21, 2010.

Mor Cassianus, the Metropolitan of the Middle-US diocese of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Europe assisted Mor Severius Moses Gurgan at the consecration. Mor Bartholomaos Joseph has been assigned with the diocese of Angamaly and South Kerala of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Europe.

“Due to the prolonged court cases and unhealthy situations between the two waring groups of Jacobite and Orthodox factions in Kerala lot of faithful and priests have requested His Eminence Mor Severius the Primate to help them and to solve the issues between the two factions. The Syrian Orthodox Church of Europe is growing across the world and because of that more bishops will be consecrated soon” says the official web site of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Europe.

Malankara Orthodox Church has asked for explanation to Mor Severius Moses Gurgan on this act, learnt IOH from Devalokam.
