Delhi Gospel Convention
- A Gospel Convention in English and Hindi will be held at St Mary's Orthodox Cathedral, Hauz Khas on August 10 and 11, 2013. It is for the first time in the Diocese of Delhi that such a convention is being organised, which will particularly benefit a significant number of Orthodox youth and families born and brought up outside Kerala in the Delhi - NCR.
The theme of the convention is "Be Transformed" based on Romans 12: 2 and the main speakers include the diocesan Metropolitan H.G.Dr. Youhanon Mar Demetrios and Rev. Fr. Geevarghese John from St. Thomas Orthodox Church, Philadelphia (USA). The Convention also gives a good opportunity to share challenges and learnings of the diaspora in Delhi and the USA (particularly Philadelphia). It is hoped that the learnings from here will go a long way in identifying key interventions for the Church in the diaspora in different parts of the world. The Indian Orthodox Diaspora Secretariat of the diocese, which is playing a key role in organizing this Convention, invites the prayerful participation, support and cooperation of all, across all age groups, for the success of the Convention. This is a good opportunity to invite our non-Malayalam speaking friends to the Convention. The programme for the Convention is as below: -
