DUBAI: “If the Church has to grow, we need to change our standpoints”, acclaimed the young member of the Holy Episcopal Synod Metropolitan Dr. Zachariahs Mar Aprem. The Metropolitan was speaking at the ‘Marthoma Smrithi’ seminar on the occasion of the feast of St. Thomas at the St. Thomas Orthodox Cathedral, Dubai. St. Thomas Youth League organized the seminar.

Present administration of the Malankara Church that boasts the St. Thomas heritage for double millennia is a blend of episcopacy and democracy. History of the Church needs interpreted through the commemoration of St. Thomas. Such seminars need to analyze history to discover the true spirit of history, added the Metropolitan.

Vicar Fr. Biju P. Thomas presided over the meeting.

The Youth League gave a very warm welcome to the newly consecrated Metropolitan. Youth League Gulf Zonal President and vicar of Jabail Ali parish Fr. Aju Abraham, Secretary Marydasan Thomas, and Vice President John P. George felicitated the Metropolitan.
