Kottayam: Rev. Fr. Raju Parakkott, Assistant Director of SEERI, and Rev. Fr. Saju K. Mathai Keeppanasseril, Director of MIMRO Syriac Institute, Muvattupuzha, Ankamaly Diocese, were honoured with the Adangapuram Mathew and Peelu Memorial Award. This award, instituted by the family of Former Chief Engineer A. M. Mathew, carries a cash prize of INR 25,000 and has been awarded annually since 2017 to recognize significant contributions to society.

About the Award

The Adangapuram Mathew and Peelu Memorial Award was established to honor the legacy of Chief Engineer A. M. Mathew and his wife, Peelu. Chief Engineer Mathew dedicated his life to serving the community with simplicity and compassion, especially aiding children with special needs in Kottayam. Mrs. Peelu, a lover of the arts, also contributed significantly to the community. The award celebrates individuals who embody their spirit of service and dedication.

About SEERI

The St. Ephrem Ecumenical Research Institute (SEERI) was established to fill a significant void in advanced Syriac studies in India. Despite the presence of seven Churches in India, each with its own training centre for clergy, there was no institute dedicated to the advanced teaching and learning of the Syriac language and heritage. SEERI aims to be a comprehensive teaching-learning centre as well as a research centre for scholars and students of Syriac literature, history, worship, and traditions.

SEERI houses manuscripts, documents, and source books necessary for in-depth study and research, making it an indispensable resource for those dedicated to Syriac heritage.

About MIMRO Syriac Institute

The MIMRO Syriac Institute, led by Fr. Saju K. Mathai Keeppanasseril, focuses on the Center for Languages, Liturgy, and Life Sciences, giving special importance to the learning, teaching, and research of the Syriac language. The institute is a vital hub for preserving and promoting the Syriac heritage through rigorous academic programs and research initiatives. Recently, MIMRO published “Comprehensive Tabular Syriac Grammar” by Fr. Saju K. Mathai Keeppanasseril, which was highlighted at the awards. This book is expected to be a valuable resource for all Syriac language enthusiasts.

Award Ceremony Highlights

The award ceremony was a momentous occasion, recognizing the invaluable contributions of Fr. Raju Parakkott and Fr. Saju K. Mathai Keeppanasseril to society. Their dedication and work have significantly advanced the understanding and preservation of the Syriac language and heritage.

His Eminence Mor Gregorios Joseph Malankara Metropolitan of the Syriac Orthodox (Jacobite) Church, in his address, highlighted the importance of community service and the vital role of SEERI in fostering academic and spiritual growth. The event was well-attended, reflecting the high regard in which the recipients and the institute are held within the community.

The recognition of Fr. Raju Parakkott and Fr. Saju K. Mathai Keeppanasseril with the Adangapuram Mathew and Peelu Memorial Award underscores the commitment of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church to preserving its rich heritage and promoting excellence in service to the community.
