Dearly beloved Thirumeni, Respected members of the Clergy and Council members,
Today is the 25th ordination anniversary of Rev. Fr. Sabu Thomas', Vicar of St. Mary's Syrian Orthodox Church, Los Angeles, as a Priest. Achen's dedication and service has been a blessing to our Archdiocese. Achen has worked very hard for many years to build several Churches throughout the western region of the country, which include different parts of California, Arizona and the state of Washington. The Clergy and Diocese are grateful to Achen for his dedication. I would like to thank my friend and brother on this auspicious milestone in his life. On behalf of our Archbishop, Clergy, Diocese and Council I would like to congratulate Achen.
May our Lord continue to bless Achen with many more years.
With love and prayers, Edathara Achen
