Heartfelt and warm welcome to Rev. Fr. Mathew Alumoottil to UAE

Date:

To the beloved Rev. Fr. Mathew Alumoottil, who has been appointed to lead the spiritual ministry of the Malankara Church communities in the UAE, along with the respected Rev. Fr. Regi Varghese, a warm and heartfelt welcome.

Rev. Fr. Alumoottil was born on March 30, 1979, to Joseph Chacko and Chinnamma, of Cheppara, Kottarakkara. He has two elder sisters.

He completed his primary and secondary education in Ayiroor-Ummanumpara, and then continued his studies at St. John’s College, Anchaal. He completed his theological studies at St. Aloysius Minor Seminary and St. Mary’s Major Seminary. He also holds a Master’s degree in Malayalam. He was ordained a priest on December 29, 2004, by His Holiness Cyril Mar Baselios Catholicos.

He began his blessed ministry as an assistant priest at St. Peter’s Cathedral, Nannavakadu, the headquarters of the Pathanamthitta Diocese, in 2005.

After serving in Pathanamthitta for two years, he served in the parishes of Anakuzhi, Mailakkara, Kadampara, Puzhnnath, Neerajakkorikka, and Marakunnam in the Diocese of Thiruvananthapuram from 2006 to 2009.

From 2009 to 2013, he served in the parishes of Karammuttu, Kattayakkoottam, Shasthavartham, and Plavara, and also served as the director of Karammuttu Boys Home.

He served in the parishes of Vellurkkoottam, Aruvikuzhy, Valiyamala, Meenangal, Parandottod, and Anappetty from 2013 to 2015, completing 10 years in the priesthood. During this time, he also served as the local manager of the Vimala English School in Kallara-Nedummangad.

From 2015 to 2017, he was appointed to serve in the parishes of Panachampuzha, Cheriyakollam-Kootthal, and Muttachal.

With the formation of the Parassala Diocese in 2017, he was appointed to serve in the diocese, and served in the parishes of Ponnettukuzhy-Vellanada, Poovachal, Mathalampara, and Thozhukulakkoottam until 2020. In addition to his parish duties, he also served as the procurator and vice-rector of the Snehadeepam Minor Seminary.

From 2020, he was serving in the parishes of Ambikekonam and Nallurvattam when he was appointed to the UAE, specifically to the communities of Abu Dhabi, Musaffah, and Al Ain. He is stepping out of the environment of his 15 years of ministry into a new beginning.

With the utmost respect, love, and heartfelt joy, we extend a warm welcome to Rev. Fr. Alumoottil to the Arabian soil.

May the grace of God, through this young priest who has been prepared and appointed to impart God’s compassion and love to humanity, be abundantly revealed to our community. May the experience, zeal, pastoral leadership, and collaborative efforts of Rev. Fr. Alumoottil be the foundation for the multifaceted growth of the church in this land.
