Status of His Grace Mathews Mar Barnabas

Blessings to the Very Reverend Chor Episcopoi, Reverend Fathers, Reverend Deacons, Esteemed Diocesan Council Members, Honorable Managing Committee Members, and faithful of the Northeast American Diocese.

Dearly beloved,

His Grace Mathews Mar Barnabas, was admitted in Pushpagir Hospital in Thiruvilla as he was not feeling well. Thirumeni has been able to eat food which is a good sign.

As per Thirumeni's request, he received the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick which was administered by Their Graces Metropolitans Geevarghese Mar Ivanios, Geevarghese Mar Coorilos, and Dr. Yuhanon Mar Chrisostomos.

Unfortunately, many different sources throughout the internet has been relaying different news. We assure you that accurate information will be relayed to you by the Northeast American Diocesan Office.

Yours in our Lord,

His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, Metropolitan
