My Visit to Canada, 2019


I visited Canada once again in June-July 2019. I had two main engagements there. One is the baptism of the son Noah John Mathews of Pratap and Julia and grandson of Suresh (Mathews John) and Sunu, my longtime friends in Toronto. The other was to conduct a Holy Qurbana at St. John’s Orthodox Church, Hamilton on invitation from vicar Rev. Fr. Blesson and my UTC friend Sam Kurian. There are quite a few friends for me in Canada. They are eager to make my visit most enjoyable. I went to various places with Balan and Soosamma and Rajan and Sajini to Niagara and IAWAH (In All thy Ways Acknowledge Him- Proverbs 3:6) with few families of St. Gregorios Indian Orthodox Church Toronto. I had a good time with my friends and family in Canada.

My Weekend in Cleveland and Pittsburgh


I spent a weekend (August 2- 5, 2019) with Mr. Abraham (Abe) Pannikkottu and Mini Abraham in Cleveland. I attended Sunday service at St. Gregorios Orthodox Church, Cleveland on the invitation of Rev. Fr. James an old student of mine at STOTS, Nagpur, the vicar. Abe is an old student of MGM HSS Thiruvalla and is so concerned of the development of the school. Mini, a dietitian by profession was concerned of protein deficiency in me. Abe took me and James Achan on Saturday for a ride to St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church (Greek tradition) in Fairlawn, Ohio and Allegheny Commons West Park in Pittsburgh.
