      Jacobite Syrian Church delegates meeting on Sept 30


      Kochi, Sept 18: Over 2,000 delegates from various churches of
      Angamaly Diocese are expected to participate in the one-day Jacobite
      Syrian Church Delegates meeting to be held here on September 30.

      Besides the delegates, more than 230 priests would also participate
      in the meeting, which was expected to take important decisions
      concerning the diocese, Bishop Joseph Mar Gregorious of Jacobites
      Church told reporters here today.

      He said the new Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government in the state
      should take steps to open for worship the churches that remained
      closed as a result of the long pending disputes between orthodox and
      Jacobite factions of the Malankara Orthodox Church over various
      issues including the church properties.

      The meeting would also give shape for an action plan for recovering
      the disputed Trikkunnath Seminary and Church, all educational and
      other institutions of the church at the nearby Aluva.

      Police intervention in church matters should be stopped, he said
      adding all cases registered against the Jacobite church faithfuls
      should be withdrawn.
