On May 28 the Rt. Rev. Noble Philip Ambalavelil (left),
bishop of the Diocese of Travancore and Cochin
in southwest India, visited the Diocesan Center with his cousin Fr. Thomas Ambalavelil, who serves at St. Matthias Church in Dallas. Members of Bishop Noble’s churches are considered “dalits” – untouchables. They work at hard labor and live in sub-standard housing. They look to the diocese for many essentials, including education for children and care
for the elderly. To make a donation, go to bethesdacharitableministry.org
