Consecration of St. George’s Relic in Chandanappally

Date:

In a series of reverential and historic events, the Chandanappally St. George Malankara Syrian Catholic Pilgrimage Church celebrated the arrival and consecration of the sacred relics of St. George, famously revered as Mor Geevarghese Sahada. This momentous occasion began on the morning of April 29, following the Divine Liturgy at the grave chapel of Blessed Mar Ivanios in St. Mary’s Malankara Syrian Catholic Major Archeparchial Cathedral.

The relic’s procession was a splendid display of faith and community spirit, journeying through Pattom, Nalanchira, Mannanthala, Karette, Ayoor, Valakom, Kizhakketheruvu, Kalayapuram, and Puthussery Bhagam churches. By late afternoon, the procession reached the Sacred Heart Church in Adoor, marking significant stops that symbolized the deep-rooted spiritual connectivity and veneration towards St. George across the region.

Continuing from Adoor, the relic made its way through Anandapally, Thatta, Kaippattoor, Omallur, and Puthenpeedika, visiting local churches, with the procession finally culminating at the Cathedral in Pathanamthitta. The arrival at the cathedral was marked by a ceremonious welcome, attended by hundreds of faithful and led by prominent figures of the church.

The primary festival, set for May 7, promises to be a grand affair with the official installation of the relic in Chandanappally St. George Malankara Syrian Catholic Pilgrimage Church. Scheduled for 9:30 AM, the event will be graced by Moran Mor Baselios Cardinal Cleemis, the Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church, alongside other distinguished clergy members.

This sacred event not only enhances the spiritual landscape of the area but also strengthens the bond within the community, reaffirming their faith and devotion towards St. George, who is celebrated for his martyrdom and triumph in Christian lore. The faithful are invited to partake in this blessed occasion, as the church anticipates a significant influx of pilgrims and believers, drawn together in shared devotion and celebration of their patron saint’s enduring legacy.
