Diocese of Delhi organizes family get-together at Parumala

NEW DELHI: OCYM of the Diocese of Delhi is organizing a family get-together at Parumala on June 11.

“The Orthodox community in North India, particularly in Delhi has a history of more than sixty years. Decades ago a few people came to North India in search of a livelihood and many of them have either returned back to Kerala or moved on to other parts of India or abroad. Many of these members are no longer with us and are only in our memories. The rest are in different parts of the country. The developments that we see in our Diocese today are the results of their hard work. Therefore, we want to appreciate and recognize the effort put in by members like them to lay the foundation for the Orthodox community in the Diocese of Delhi and northern parts of India at large”, said the organizers.

The event is part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations of the OCYM. Online Registration is available and those, who wish to register, may do so before March 31, 2011.

Metropolitan of the Diocese of Delhi Job Mar Philoxenos inaugurated online registration for the event. Fr. Stephen Varghese, OCYM General Secretary, Fr. Philip M. Samuel, Diocesan Vice President, OCYM, Fr. Thomas John Mavelil, Vice President of Acolytes Guild, Diocese of Delhi, and Fr. Bineesh Babu, Diocesan Sunday School Director took part in the event.
