Mar Barnabas Educational Award for the year 2014 Recipients
We are pleased announce the names of the recipients of Mar Barnabas Educational Award for the year 2014. The Award committee has received 15 applications from all different regions of this diocese. All applicants did their best, and the evaluation was tough. The committee, after careful evaluations, has identified 10 recipients for this year; 5 first places and 5 second places. I thank all applicants and congratulate them for their accomplishments. Every applicant did their best and a winner in many ways.
I congratulate and thank all children who applied for this Award and encourage them to continue to live with their hopes and dreams identified in their personal statements. I also congratulate the parents, Clergy and Sunday school teachers who helped them mold their life aspirations.
Effective this year ( 2014 ) we will announce the Barnabas Educational Award along with the Memorial Day of His Grace Mar Barnabas of blessed memory. I also want to ask you to encourage High School students to apply for this Educational educational award without hesitation. Today the Award amount comes from the Diocesan funds. I encourage people to pray for the success of this Scholarship and help us expand the scholarship program to other avenues.
May the Grace and Mercy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be with you all during this time of the feast of nativity and in the year 2015,
