Vicar’s Term Extension

The Vicar & Office Bearers
Detroit Mar Thoma Church,

Dear Achen & Office Bearers:

Greetings from the Sinai Mar Thoma Center, New York.

As per the Episcopal Synod’s decision, the term of your Vicar Rev. Varghese Thomas will be extended for one year from May 2022. The Diocese intends to file extension of stay for one year from May 1, 2022 to April 30, 2023 for your Vicar.

Since we need to file the extension petition and applications before April 30, 2022, kindly make available the documents (hard copy) in the attached list both from the parish, Achen and family members to be sent to the Diocesan Office on or before February 28, 2022.

Hope the crisis situation will be over and God’s mercy and peace may prevail on everyone.

With Prayerful Regards

Rt. Rev. Dr. Isaac Mar Philoxenos
Diocesan Bishop
