Status Update of His Grace Mathews Mar Barnabas

Blessings to the Very Reverend Chor Episcopoi, Reverend Fathers, Reverend Deacons, Esteemed Diocesan Council Members, Honorable Managing Committee Members, and faithful of the Northeast American Diocese.

Dearly beloved,

We wish to inform you all on the most up to date information on our beloved Vailya Thirumeni, His Grace Mathews Mar Barnabas. After receiving the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, Thirumeni requested to read the local newspaper and thereafter entertained visitors.

In fact we called Vailya Thirumeni this morning, and His Grace was enjoying a conversation with His Grace Dr. Gabriel Mar Gregorios who was visiting.

Vailya Thirumeni requested to receive Holy Qurbana, however His Grace was feeling much better and shared that he will receive Holy Qurbana in Church on Sunday, after better preparation.

Thank God, our Thirumeni is doing much better. Once again, many different sources throughout the internet have been relaying different news. We assure you that accurate information will be relayed to you by the Northeast American Diocesan Office.

Yours in our Lord,

His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, Metropolitan
