      All arrangements are completed for the Jacobite Episcopal synod
      meeting on 23rd at Karingachira St. George Jacobite Syrian Orthodox
      Church, which will be presided by the visiting Patriarch H.H.
      Ignatius Zakka I Iwas. 18 Bishops, including the 3 visiting Bishops
      from Syria, Mor Athanatius Elia Bahi (Patriarchal Assistant), Pathros
      Mor Silvanos (Homs), Malki Mor Militius (Australia) will take part in
      the historical synod meeting. The synod will decide on various
      spiritual and administrative issues.

      30,000 people, through closed circuit TVs arranged, can view the
      Patriarch's Holy Qurbana and other services in the Church.

      "The Patriarchal visit and the Episcopal Synod at Karingachira are
      historical ones", said Catholicos H.B. Baselius Thomas I, in a press
      conference. "The Malankara Association meeting at Mulanthuruthy
      Church on 27th September will be the repetition of such an
      Association meeting held 126 years ago", the Catholicos added.

      "The Patriarchal visit is coinciding with the historical changes
      happened in the Malankara Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church and hence
      the Episcopal synod convening at Karingachira, after the formation of
      the new Malankara Jacobite Syrian Christian Association, will have
      several implications", said the Episcopal Synod Secretary H. G.
      Joseph Mor Gregorios.

      The Patriarch will arrive at Nedumbasseri Airport on 20th morning,
      and will attend the silver jubilee celebration of the Patriarchal
      consecration on 21st at Ernakulam Marine Drive. The Chief Minister
      Oommen Chandy will inaugurate the meeting and the keynote address
      will be given by Major Archbishop Mor Varkey Vithayathil.

      On 23rd at Karingachira Church, the Catholicos H.B. Baselius Thomas
      I, Kochi Diocesan Bishop Joseph Mor Gregorius, other Bishops, Priests
      and lay leaders will receive the Patriarch. After the morning prayers
      and Holy Qurbana, the Patriarch will give the key message to the
      people attending the service.

      After completing the visit in Kerala, the Patriarch will leave for
      Delhi on 28th. His Holiness will be given public reception there
      under the leadership of National Christian Council of India. The
      Patriarch will meet the President of India, the Prime Minister,
      Congress President Sonia Gandhi and the Opposition leader.

      Fr. P. P. Joseph Nadappuzha, Fr. Shammy John Eramangalath, Fr. Mathai
      Kulachir, Fr. Sabu Paul Vendrappalli, Publicity Co-ordinator C. M.
      Kurian etc also attended the press conference.
