      OCYM Dubai unit celebrated Easter by joining members of the Sonapur
      area prayer group for an Easter celebration. H.G. Mathews Mar
      Theodosius, the metropolitan of the Idukki diocese was the guest of
      honour. The programme began with a melodious prayer song and Bible
      reading by Mr. Saji. Senior member of the prayer group, Mr. Philip
      Koodel gave a warm welcome to all the dignitaries, church managing
      committee members, OCYM members and fellow camp inmates who attended
      the gathering.

      The vicar of St. Thomas Orthodox Cathedral, Rev. Fr. T.J. Johnson
      presided over the function and in his presidential speech, described
      his fond memories of his experiences at Bethany asramam that was
      headed by H.G. Mathews Mar Theodosius or Fr. Stephen as he was then
      called. In his Easter message, H.G. Mathews Mar Theodosius urged
      Sonapur area members not to be worried by the localization news that
      was driving Malayali emigrants back from Saudi and Kuwait. He compared
      the risen Christ to the fabled phoenix bird of Arabian folk tales and
      proclaimed that the resurrection of Christ was the single most
      important event in human history. Fr. Thomas Mukallil, the managing
      editor of the Malankara Sabha magazine who was also present at the
      function light heartedly spoke on the need for all Christians to be
      aware of the important events in Christ’s life and to attend church
      regularly while living in this worldly environment.

      Joint secretary of the parish managing committee Mr. Babu Kuruvilla,
      Mr. Philip.I.T., and Mr. Kurian Varghese were others who spoke at the
      gathering. The programme concluded with prayer and benediction and a
      love feast.
