H.G.Geevarghese Mar Coorilos, the Diocesan Metropolitan will deliver the inaugural address. It is expecting around 1000 delegates from all over the Diocese will gather for this conference.

About the Main Speaker: Rev. Fr. T.J.Joshua, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday is an extraordinary genius among the priests in the Malankara orthodox congregation. That unique and incomparable personality has the power of knowledge, the reverberations of the supreme power and also the purity of a spiritual instructor. He could get off a spark in the lamp of the psyche of the priests who were legislated out from 1955 onwards from Kottayam orthodox theological seminary (old seminary/study house).The Pastor’s both words and face have the same luminosity. Rev. Fr. Joshua is the teacher of all the present respectable bishops (except a few who haven’t done their studies from the priest seminary).

We expect about 4000 of our people to make it a great blessing. All our parishes should arrange sufficient number of vehicles and ensure the participation of maximum number of people.

We are glad and grateful to H.G.Dr.Yuhanon Mar Chrystomos, the Metropolitan of Niranam and the President of the Mission Board who be the main speaker.
