PUTHUPPALLI: A matchless reception was offered to the newly installed Catholicos of the East Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Paulose II at St. George Orthodox Church, Puthuppalli on Friday, November 5, 2010.

The mile long motorcade started from the Catholicate Palace, Devalokam, Kottayam with the Pontiff and Metropolitans honorably riding with extreme reverence from the multitude of people accompanying them. They were received at Puthuppalli junction by the faithful and priests of Kottayam Diocese. Jubilation and joy overflowed, when the multitudes’ happiness erupted like a volcano at the mere sight of their shepherd, who was to lead them into the depths of 21st Century.

The Pontiff offered incense at the relics of St. George at the St. George’s Orthodox Church, Puthuppalli.

The Public meeting is progressing with Dr. Mar Aprem of Chaldean Church and Arch Bishop Emeritus Mar Joseph Powathil as chief speakers.

Fr. Thomas Abraham and Fr. Thomas Andrews, vicars of St. George’s Orthodox Church, Puthuppalli are leading the event.
