      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.
