MUSCAT : Ahmedabad Diocese Metropolitan Pulikkottil Dr Geevarghese Mar Yulios has called up on the Muscat Mar Gregorios Orthodox Youth Movement members to concentrate on Christ-oriented spiritual meetings than organizing mere business meetings.

Metropolitan later welcomed new office bearers for 2012-13 and urged them to do their best. Prizes and mementoes were also presented by the Metropolitan to all those who won prizes in the various competitions held during the year.
