      The last such instance was on April 7, 1950 when the Malankara
      Church followed the Julian calendar. The Syriac Orthodox Church in
      the Near East and its diaspora observes the Holy week according to
      the Julian calendar and hence does not have a similar circumstance.

        Dear George
        Shlomo

        The SOC in the Middle East and Diaspora follow the Julian calendar
        for Great Lent & Easter. That is the case with almost all Eastern
        churches in the Middle East.

        Malankara switched to the Gregorian calendar only in 1953 by the
        Bull of Patriarch Aphrem I.

        The changes are applied to Malankara was as per the request of
        faithful from Malankara. The reasons for the changes are well
        explained in the Apostolic Bull. A copy of the Apostolic Bull (in
        Malayalam language) is available at following links.
