    There are several occasions the Herald has published articles with the Diocesan Metropolitans with your own titles. Please try to use the correct ones as the readers are getting confused with the one above as follows
    ” Diocesan Metropolitan Mathews Mar Barnabas and Auxiliary Metropolitan Zachariah Mar Nicholavos” I visted the Diocesan official Web site and the Nicholavas Thirumeni is the Assistant Metropolitan of the North East American Dioces. Please use the Official one.
