Dr Abraham Mar Seraphim leads Holy Eucharist at Dayabhavan

BENGALURU : For the first time, the Fellowship for Orthodox IT employees in Bengaluru Region will move out of capital city to hold its monthly fellowship meeting.

Techies and families have evinced keen interest in travelling to Kunigal, a town in Tumkur district, and located 75 kms from Bengaluru.

Based on a suggestion from Johny Joseph, an active member, it was decided to hold its meeting at St Gregorios Dayabhavan at Kunigal on October 16, Sunday. Usually, the afternoon meetings were being held at the St Greogorios Cathedral, Hosur Road.

HG Dr Abraham Mar Seraphim, Metropolitan, Bengaluru Diocese will lead the Holy Eucharist at St Gregorios Dayabhavan at 8.30 am.

The highlight of the meeting will be an address by the Metropolitan and Rev Fr Jinesh K Varkey, Manager, Dayabhavan, explaining about the work at the Centre.

St Gregorios Dayabhavan is an initiative of Malanakara Orthodox Church Mission Board. It is a registered society under the Karnataka Societies Registration Act, 1960. The Mission Board of Malankara Orthodox Church began its battle against HIV/Aids by establishing the institution to advocate equitable access to quality HIV prevention, care and treatment services to all people living with or at risk.

While there are multiple projects being executed at Dayabhavan, the one that deserves special mention is the Dayabhavan Care and Support Centre for PLHA (People Living with HIV/Aids). Established in May 2006, the Dayabhavan Care and Support Centre have facilities to provide medical care, counseling services and rehabilitation for 10 PLHA.
