      Parish council for non-cooperation with Church leadership

      KOCHI, FEB. 26. The Parish Protection Council of the St. Mary's
      Orthodox Cathedral, Ernakulam, under the Malankara Orthodox Syrian
      Church, has called for non-cooperation with the Church leadership.

      Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, the Council convener,
      Cheriyan Philip, and its members, Maman Koshi and P.K. Issac, accused
      the Church leadership of interfering in the functioning of the cathedral.
      The Metropolitan was intervening in the rights accorded to parishes
      under the constitution of the Church, they said.

      The Church leadership had been taking a negative stand towards the
      complaints submitted so far, the Council leaders said.

      They said a meeting of parish members held on Tuesday had protested
      against the actions of the Metropolitan. The meeting decided to start
      an agitation through peaceful means against the anti-democratic stand
      of the Church leadership.
