As of every year, the feast of St.Thomas the apostle was celebrated with great enthusiasm and vigor at St.Thomas Orthodox Theological Seminary, Nagpur on 20th and 21st Dec 2017. H.G. Dr. Mathews Mar Thimotheos, metropolitan of U.K., Europe and Africa was the chief celebrant. His Grace in his Perunal message urged the faithful to abide in the original mission and vision of St.Thomas, who sowed the seeds of Gospel in the East especially India.
In the public meeting, which was attended by faithful from far and near and also hundreds of local villagers from surrounding villages, Mr. Saji Abraham, a devout member of Itarsi Balagram, delivered the devotional talk in Hindi.
On the occasion of this year’s perunal, a colorful book catering to the spiritual needs of the young diaspora was released by the name ‘Know my Church’ which was prepared by Rev.Fr.Jobin Varghese and Dn.Jaison John. The perunal celebrations concluded with the Love feast.
