Dr. Bijesh Philip welcomed the seminarians, especially the newly ordained Deacons of the year. Thereafter conducted the dedication prayer service at the seminary chapel led by the Metropolitan Mar Elias.

–The st. Thomas’ faith statement “My Lord and my God” was a divine revelation to the entire human race– said Mar Elias. As a follower of Christ, each on of us should also be ready to have divine revelations and should work earnestly for the kingdom of God with conviction and dedication, the Metropolitan added.

Every Orthodox student should take a six months course in the “Gap Year” before starting University. This is the traditional practise followed in the Sabbatical Year for travel, study, etc. This is an ideal opportunity under the eminent present leadership of scholars in our church. The Course should consist of introduction to our doctrines and familiarise with the hierarchies of the Church. ” Best Wishes ” ( From All Grand Parents, Outside Kerala )
