PARUMALA THIRUMENI

St.Gregorios of Parumala:

Saint Gregorios of Parumala (1848-1902) is popularly known as "Parumala Thirumeni". Metropolitan Geevarghese Mar Gregorios of the Malankara Orthodox Church, became the first declared Saint from Malankara Orthodox Church, Kerala, India.

 

Mar Gregorios believed that the church should engage in educational activity especially to facilitate primary education and English teaching without discriminating gender or religion. Accordingly he started schools at Kunnamkulam, Mulanthuruthy,Niranam, Tumpamon, Thiruvalla etc. The missionary task of the Church was also evinced by his outreach programme to the socially downtrodden communities at Chennithala, Kalikunnu, Mallappally, Puthupally, Kallumkathara etc. He also organized awakening programme for non-christians at various places like Aluva, under the leadership of the Christian workers.

Dedicated his life for the uplift of the downtrodden, the marginalized ones irrespective of caste, creed or community. He shines in the cloud of witnesses as a bright luminary giving rays of hope to millions in their suffering and struggles.

Mar Greogorios was born on 15th June 1848 ( M.E.Mithunam 3,1023) to Kochu Mathai and Mariam of Pallathetta family in the Chathuruthy house at Mulanthuruthy. He was called by the name 'Kochaippora' and was given the baptismal name 'Geevarghese'.

The Blessed soul left the earthly abode on 2nd November 1902. The many testimonies to the saintly intercession of Mar Gregorios made Parumala Church and the tomb a centre of pilgrimage. In 1947 Mar Gregorios of blessed memory was declared a saint by the then Catholicos of the church, His Holiness Baselios Geevarghese II.

Metropolitan Dr.Paulos Mar Gregorios treads the path of the vision of Parumala Thirumeni founding a Charitable Trust in his name.
