Clergy Association

2009 Clergy AssociationThe clergy of the Northeast American Diocese gather together twice a year under the prayerful leadership of the Metropolitans for retreat, prayer, meditation, confession, discussion and fellowship.

During the Great Fast, the priests and deacons of the Diocese remain in retreat for one weekend with the Metropolitans. It has become a recent practice to also gather in the fall season for the clergy conference to discuss and share new initiatives for the spiritual growth and progress of the faithful Malankara Orthodox Christians in the Northeast American Diocese.

It is worthy to note, that it was under this Clergy Association, the Campus Ministry movement was formed and was set into motion to reach out to our students at various college and university campuses.

The Clergy Association Secretary is currently Very Rev. Dr. Yohannan Sankarathil Chor Episcopos.
