Special Visit by Sister Church
On November 8, Fr. Dr. M. P. George, a professor of liturgical music at the Orthodox Theological Seminary at Kottayam in Kerala, India, visited St. Nersess along with alumni and current students of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary.
Fr. M.P. George was visiting the NY/NJ area and took the opportunity to travel to St. Nersess at the invitation of the Very Rev. Fr. Daniel Findikyan, Professor of Liturgical Studies and Primate of the Eastern Diocese. The guests toured the campus and joined the seminarians for lunch.
“Fr. M. P. George is familiar with our curriculum since St. Nersess is a respected institution in India,” commented Fr. Daniel. Also in attendance was Fr. George Koshy, the vicar of St. George Orthodox Church of Westchester, NY, which is part of the American Diocese of the Indian Orthodox Church. Kottayam is part of the Malankara Orthodox Church and is the first Orthodox Christian school of theology in Asia.
