Re: Dn. Jerry Jacob, MD of the American Archdiocese to the Holy Priesthood
- Dear all,
This is truly a good news for the holy Syrian Orthodox Church, Malankara Archdiocese and Saint Marys JSO Church of White Plains. Chev. Babu Jacob Nadayil and his wife will be the proud parents when their elder son Dn. (Dr.) Jerry Jacob gets ordained as a priest of the Holy Syrian Orthodox Church.
After H.E. Archbishop Yeldho Mor Theethos took charge of the Malankara Archdiocese in North America & Canada, an increasing trend among the youths towards priesthood have been noticed. We should thank the almighty God for attracting more and more youngsters towards His work when the general trend among youngsters in this country is to drift away from God. We should encourage the idea of new generation priests because they can communicate effectively with our kids and youngsters-the future of our Church. The vision of our Archbishop in this direction is the proper one and the results will be great for the Holy Church.
I am sure that Dn. Jerry, the well educated gentleman with a warm smile and sweet words, will be an asset to the Holy Church and the Archdiocese. Moreover, we need young priests to the administrative side of the archdiocese.
Congratulations dear deacon Jerry, and may God bless you and your family.
