His Grace was Student of Christ Church College in Oxford University during 1937-’39. Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, former President of India, was one of his best friends there. Inspired by the noble traditions of western culture and civilization His grace wanted the Mount Tabor to be a more useful centre for the people around. He was consecrated as Metropolitan of Niranam Diocese of the Orthodox Church in 1940 and continued in the same ecclesiastical post for 32 years till his demise on 3rd December 1972. Besides being an ecclesiastical Episcopal leader, he was also a versatile social leader, philanthropist, humanist and educationist. The mortal remains of His Grace were interred in the Mount Tabor monastry chapel. The large number of educational institutions, hospitals and orphanages, in Kerala and Tamilnadu stand as monuments to the service of our founder for the cause of education and social welfare in the country.
