  1. Thank God. I’m currently part and the Indian orthodox community and this was very helpful for all of us. I sent the post to all the members of the committee as soon as I read it.

    I personally want to send you a note to say thank you for Fr Thomas varghese who was with us this past Saturday in our Church. It was great to have you and worship with us and I hope we will have a blessed community in the near future. Without a doubt, we feel extremely blessed to be part of a church family which takes time out of a busy schedule to say words of appreciation to the people who took effort [First orthodox Chrisitan Church]. God bless u all….
