Holy relics of St. George at Puthuppally church

By Our Staff Reporter

KOTTAYAM, MAY 2 . The holy relics of St. George, kept at the Old Seminary here, were taken to the centuries-old St. George church at Puthuppally, today. The special ceremonies would be held on May 7 when the Catholicos of the East, Baselius Mar Thoma Mathews II, head of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, would be the principal celebrant.

The holy relics were brought to Kerala by the late Metropolitan Vattasseril Mar Dionysius, who is the second canonised saint of the Malankara Church, in 1916 from the Holy Land.

The relics would be formally installed at a specially constructed spot on Friday on the occasion of the feast of St. George.
