Ahmedabad Diocese to go online from March 5
Catholicos of the East to launch moscad.info
AHMEDABAD — The ‘Sunthronitho’ or Enthronement ceremony of Metropolitan Pulikkottil Dr Geevarghese Mar Yulios of Indian Orthodox Church’s newest Ahmedabad Diocese is to take place on March 5, 2011.
The event will also simultaneously see the launch of the diocese website – www.moscad.info.
Moscad stands for Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church Ahmedabad Diocese.
In all likelihood, moscad.info will join the information highway from the gracious hands of the Catholicos of the East and Malankara Metropolitan HH Baselios Marthoma Paulose II.
Presently, only the main page containing details about Ahmedabad Diocese exists. The home page traces the brief history of the diocese formation and its formal inauguration on October 3, 2009. Mention is also of the first General Body meeting held on June 19, 2009 held under the Presidentship of Geevarghese Mar Coorilose at St Mary’s Orthodox Syrian Church, Ahmedabad. Also details on its first bishop Dr Pulikkottil Geevarghese Mar Yulios Metropolitan who took charge on August 15, 2010.
Information and other links on Home, Metropolitan, Church, Faith, News, Multimedia, Kalpana, contact sections will be added upon during the next phase of its construction.
Moscad.info is being structured on the model of Chengannur Diocese.
Work on the skeletal of the main page was done by Bonnie, a final year Computer Science student and web developer of Urbane Projects Inc, Philadelphia. Hence the server will be based in the USA. More colourful pages with multi-media will be rolled out by this final year student and web developer.
Tech savvy, Dr Mar Yulios, has evinced keen interest in putting his diocese on the world wide web during the ‘Sunthronitho’ ceremony.
