MEMORY ETERNAL H.G. GEEVARGHESE MAR IVANIOS
With the Hope of resurrection, would like to inform you about the heavenly departure of H.G.Geevarghese Mar Ivanios,the Metropolitan of Kottayam Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Church. Thirumeni entered into eternal rest today (April 12th) at 7.30 AM (Indian time) at Karipal Hospital, Kottayam. Thirumeni was well known for his prayer life and spiritual leadership. He was instrumental in establishing Njaliyakuzhy Dayara which became the modern Mount Athos of the Malankara Orthodox church. He served the church as the professor of Orthodox Theological seminary and the President of the St. Thomas Vydika Sangam, an organization for the clergies of the church. As a Metropolitan he was very particular for the spiritual discipline and growth of the Kottayam Diocese. His prophetic voice always became a corrective force against the evil trends in the church and the society. Thirumeni stands parallel with Pampadi Thirumeni for his devotion and human love. He had visited the United States many times, inspired and encouraged many youth for a dedicated devotional life. As Thirumeni moves into history, we, visibly miss one more bishop with true vision and devotion. May his soul rest with the righteous and the just in the heavenly abode. May his prayers be a refuge for us before God Almighty.

H.G. MATHEWS MAR BARNABAS - MEMORIAL
Our parish has had very close association with Barnabas Thirumeni from the time we acquired the Torresdale Avenue, Philadelphia church building in 1994. Later on, he laid the corner stone of our new Church building at Bensalem, Pennsylvania in 2007 and was the chief celebrant at the consecration ceremony in 2009. Thirumeni was one of the first contributors to our Church building fund and gave us a generous donation. This Memorial page is published in honor of our cherished Barnabas Thirumeni with reflections, memories and tributes to this saintly shepherd. We dedicate this Memorial page to the feet of our dearly esteemed father who joined with the cloud of Saints.
