Warm greetings from the CSI South Kerala Diocese. It is with great joy I greet the CSI Congregation of South Kerala Diaspora in Dubai.
It has been a historic reality that people from South Travancore has been travelling across the globe and settling down in different countries all through the last many decades. It is yet a matter of regret and concern for me that we have grossly failed in the proper pastoral care of our people. They were left mostly to tend for themselves or to seek pastures in churches of other dioceses or denominations. Many of them were lured away by para church movements and many opted to keep a safe distance from the church.
The CSI Church of the South Kerala Dioaspora in Dubai was a humble initiative of the Diocese to address this pressing need.
I have seven prayers for the congregation in Dubai
I also sincerely appeal that there shall be no spirit of competition with any one. We should be able to work in close communion with all churches within the CSI fold and outside towards a harmonious witness
May God richly Bless You
Rt. Rev. Dharmaraj Rasalam
