Geevarghese Mar Coorilos Metropolitan, one of the senior Metropolitans of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church and the Modern Architect of the Bombay Diocese has reached his 70th year or Sapthathi Varsham, by the Grace of God. Not being interested in any festive celebrations, His Grace is instead working hard for the betterment of the society and is pushing his people to do so as well. Our Metropolitan is keen that during the Sapthathi year, we start some more social and charitable projects. Respecting his wishes, the Diocesan General Body Meeting held on 27th Jul 2019 at Vashi Aramana decided to: Provide shelter to 9 homeless families, provide marriage assistance to 7 underprivileged girls and Provide educational and medical assistance to the needy, during his Sapthathi year. A subcommittee named “Sapthathi Committee” was formed including priests, Sabha managimmittee members and Bombay diocesan council members to make this project success. By the grace of God, the first home for the homeless was blessed on the 20th Jan, 2020 at Anary, Kerala by our beloved Metropolitan. The second home, at Kottayam, is in the final stages of construction at the time of this report. During the year we could also give marriage assistance for two girls and housing aid for one family, along with two houses in Kerala. OBITUARY It is with utmost sadness that we notify the sad demise of Malankara Association managing committee member representing Bombay Diocese from 2017 and one of our senior members, Mr. Jacob Oommen in December 2019. He was the Diocesan Secretary of the OCYM for many years and was associated with so many activities of the Parish as well as the Diocese in various capacities. He also served as the school committee member and the construction committee member of the diocese. His contributions to the growth of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in general, and the Diocese of Bombay in particular, has been immense. We pray to our Lord Almighty to keep him in his bosom till the second coming of our Lord. aNNUaL RePoRT : 2019 - 20 Page 6 of 76

FREESHIPS IN SCHOOL RUN BY MOCCB About 150 economically backward students are studying in our regular school. We are providing free-ship/fee-concession to these students, equivalent to the expenses of about Rs. 27,07,500/- per annum. 5. ANNAYOGANA A program for providing midday meals to the bystanders of patients admitted to the Municipal Hospital at Vashi as many of these are poor people and cannot afford food from nearby hotels.
