BENGALURU: Rev Fr Varghese Philip Idichandy, Vicar/President, St Gregorios Orthodox Church, Mathikere, Bengaluru, marked yet another milestone in his illustrious career as a clergyman. On November 22, Wednesday, for the first time in the history of Bengaluru Diocese, Fr Idichandy led a special holy Eucharist exclusively for the ailing elders and senior citizens of the church.
The vicar expressed his sincere thanks to Mr Jacob Oommen (Saju), the long-serving sexton who worked hard to channelise and transport the ailing from their home to the church and back. He also did not fail to mention the able support received from the young altar boys for their work.
At the end of the Eucharist, Fr Idichandy thanked God for providing him with such a thought and the willingness to serve Him in all possible ways.
From December the special Holy Qurbana for elders will be held during second Saturdays with the next one scheduled for December 9. The new church is located at # 264, 10th Main Road, Mathikere Extension, Mathikere, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560 054.
