BERLIN : Pulikkottil Dr Geevarghese Mar Yulios, Metropolitan, Ahmedabad Diocese, is presently visiting Austria and the Federal Republic of Germany for ringing in Christmas (Yeldo) and New Year festivity.

The European countries are all decked up to celebrate Nativity season and merge with the joyous season of Yule tide spirit.

The 20-day visit which began from December 13 ends by New Year.

For the Festival of the Nativity of our Lord, Dr Mar Yulios will lead the Christmas service at the St Gregorios Orthodox Church, Bielefeld. Bielefeld is an independent independent city in the Ostwestfalen-Lippe Region in the north-east of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

After this, Dr Mar Yulios moves to Cologne Bonn, for services on December 26.

On December 23, Friday, a reception is being planned at the head-quarters of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) at Hanover. Twenty-two Lutheran, Reformed and United regional churches (Landeskirchen) form the Evangelical Church in Germany.

Another reception is being arranged at Frederic-Alexander University, Erlangen from where the Metropolitan obtained his post doctoral research on December 27. The reception will be fitting enough for the young Metropolitan who is heading a Diocese from a major community in India and the University can pride itself of the achievement of its former student.

This will be the third visit of Dr Mar Yulios to Deutschland after a gap of 6 years having earlier completed
his research study from the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen in 2004.

Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is one of the largest universities in Germany.
The Metropolitan’s earlier visit was in 2005 for attending a conference and though there had been invites to European countries, this had to be postponed due to pressing schedules back home.

On December 18, Sunday, the Metropolitan led the Holy Eucharist at the St Thomas Orthodox Church, Vienna.
