      Biographies of St. Gregorios & Kadavil Thirumeni (new)

      On 2nd November 2004 the church celebrates the 102nd Dhukrono of
      Chathuruthil St. Gregorios Bava (Parumala Thirumeni) and the 97th
      Dhukrono of Kadavil Mor Athansius Paulose (Kadavil Thirumeni I).

      Born in the Kadavil Kooran family of North Paravur, Mor Athanasius
      was ordained Metropolitan on 2 November 1876 at the North Paravur
      St. Thomas church by the Patriarch Moran Mor Ignatius Pathros IV. A
      week later Chathuruthil Mor Gregorios Bava, popularly known as
      Parumala Thirumeni, was also ordained Metropolitan at the same
      church by the Patriarch assisted by Kadavil Mor Athanasius
      Thirumeni. Both these Metropolitans together with the Malankara
      Metropolitan Pulikotiil Mor
      Dionysius Joseph were instrumental in the development of the
      Malankara
      Archdiocese after a period of great distress. On November 2nd 1902,
      St.
      Gregorios passed away and was entombed at the Parumala St. Peter's
      church.

      Exactly five years later on the same date, Kadavil Thirumeni I also
      passed away and his mortal remains were interred at the St. Mary's
      church near Thrikknathu Seminary, Aluva.
