Today, 27th September, marks the 76th year of the Church of South India (CSI), the united and uniting Church.
Church history remembers this day as the second Pentecost. On 27th September 1947, as a true witness to the power of Christian unity, four different diverse traditions united to form this great church. Jesus prayed, as in John 17: 20-21 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me, and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
CSI Parish (Malayalam) Dubai is proud to be part of the Church of South India* and wishes blessings on this day to every member of Christendom.
Let us journey ahead to greater fellowship and unity so that Christ’s name be glorified.
- Rev. Raju Jacob, Vicar
