In a Kalpana, Diocesan Metropolitan HG Pulikkottil Dr Geevarghese Mar Yulios, has patted Liju Cherian, Diocesan Media Secretary, and the media for its achievement in excellent reportage on Diocesan activities in various medium.
HG Dr Mar Yulios notes that in a rapidly changing tech world, Facebook was very much required to convey important issues or matters urgently. The social networking site has become the voice of the Diocese through the support of the faithful all over the world and has solicited their further encouragement and support in future. Ahmedabad Diocese was the first Diocese on MOSC to go online via Facebook.
The Metropolitan further notes that the site provides latest updates of Ahmedabad Diocese and has excellent backup on data of all Kalpanas issued, photos and links on news related to activities of churches in the Diocese. Along with that it also reports many important news from the Orthodox Family of Churches and global Christian concerns.
Dr Mar Yulios has also upheld the view of HH the Catholicos who had recently commended media-awareness and social-networking, which though good in many aspects must however not be misused. His Grace has also cautioned the consequences which are beyond our control and can even harm the morality of the community and society at large and urged to use them in a meaningful way.
The Kalpana dated June 22, 2013 was issued from St Stephen's Orthodox Church, Texas, USA, where the Metropolitan is presently on a visit. Presently, HG Dr Mar Yulios and Liju Cherian act as admins for the site.
