It is with deep sorrow and regret that I share the information of the demise of Mr. Abraham Karukayil, Malam, Kottayam, the beloved father of Rev. Fr. Kuriakose Karukayil on September 5, 2008 at 8:30 am. He was 81 years old. The funeral ceremony will be held at St. Mary's Church, Manarcad, Kottayam on September 9, 2008 at 3 pm. I express deep condolences on behalf of the Malankara Archdiocese of The Syrian Orthodox Church in North America and Canada and share the grief and pain with the bereaved family. May God Almighty give him his rightful place in the heavenly kingdom.
With prayerful regards,
Rev. Dr. Varghese P. Manikat
