      New Metropolitan for Jacobite Syrian Church
      Indian Express - Saturday December 30 2006 11:38 IST

      KOCHI: The Jacobite Syrian Church gets a new Metropolitan with the
      consecration of Kozhiparambath Elias Ramban as metropolitan on New
      Year Day. The ceremony will be held at Puthencruz Patriarch
      Cathedral which is the headquarters of the Church.

      The order from Antioch appointing the new Metropolitan will be read
      out at the churches on Sunday. The new Metropolitan will be the
      secretary and assistant to the Sreshta Catholica Bava.

      Kuriakose Mar Theophilos, Metropolitan of UAE and Europe, announced
      at a news conference here that financial aid for the marriage of 60
      poor girls will be distributed after the consecration ceremony at
      Puthencruz on January 1. Sewing machines will be distributed to 50
      women.

      The financial aid for the weddings and sewing machines comes from
      the members of St Mary's Sunoro Church, Sharjah. Another project for
      the distribution of 150 artificial limbs by Dubai Cathedral is on
      the anvil, said the Metropolitan.

      Mathews Mor Ivanios, president of the Malankara Youth Association,
      said that the association had constructed 200 houses for the poor
      across the state. The Shresta Catholica Bava will soon announce the
      Metropolitan of Kozhikode diocese, said Mathews Mor Aphrem,
      Metropolitan of High Range. Spokesperson of the church Fr Varghese
      Kallappara, Fr Aby Elangamattom and Chev John Punnamattom also
