2012 Diocesan Clergy Retreat Concludes

The Clergy Association of the Northeast American Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, gathered on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at St. Mary's Orthodox Church 45 E Elm St Linden, New Jersey for its annual Lenten Retreat.

His Grace Dr. Geevarghese Mar Yulios, Metropolitan of Ahmedabad Diocese was the Retreat Father.

After the Office of Third Hour, the clergy of the Diocese offered prayers of incense for His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, the supreme pontiff of the Holy Coptic Orthodox Church, who fell asleep in the Lord one week ago, along with His Grace Dr. Geevarghese Mar Osthathios, Metropolitan, who fell asleep in the Lord more than one month ago.

The clergy of the Diocese also passed a resolution extending our unwavering support to our sister Church, the Holy Coptic Orthodox Church during this troubling time.
