Rev. Fr. K. K. Punnose (Late lamented H. G Stephanos Mar Theodosius of Calcutta Diocese) joined as vicar. Achen really became the historic person in the annals of St. Mary’s Orthodox Church. “You must realize that the Lord has chosen you to build his Holy Temple. Now do it- and do it with determination” 1Chr 28:10.
Honorable Achen took up the assignment courageously and got in touch with the Amir and the authorities and followed up on the application submitted by our parish through Mr. T. E Joseph.
