Blessings to the Vicars, Asst. Vicars, Priests of the Locality, Parish Managing Committee members and all the faithful of the parishes in the South Region of our Diocese.
We are pleased to inform you that the 2016 South Region Family & Youth Conference will take place from Wednesday, June 29 through Saturday, July 2, 2016, at Highland Lake Conference Center, Austin, TX. The conference is intended for all age groups and we hope to see maximum participation from each parish in the region. As you all know family conference is the annual joint meeting of all the spiritual organizations in one center. It provides an atmosphere for prayer, spiritual renewal, learning, fellowship, fun and more for the entire family.
We have appointed a core committee with Rev. Fr. Sam Mathew as the Conference Director, Rev. Fr. Joel Mathew as the Joint Director, Mr. Charly Padanilam as the Secretary and Mr. Kurian Panicker as the Treasurer. We urge all parishes to nominate at least two individuals from each parish to form the different committees required for the Conference. Rev. Fr. P.A. Philip, the Director of the Human Resource Department of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church has agreed to be the keynote speaker of the conference. The theme, name of the youth speaker and other details will be informed you in due course. We seek the prayers and support of all the clergy and faithful of the South Region for the success of the 2016 Family & Youth Conference.
May the blessings of God Almighty be showered upon us all!
Your Shepherd in Christ
Metropolitan Alexios Mar Eusebius
