I visited Canada once again in June-July 2019. I had two main engagements there. One is the baptism of the son Noah John Mathews of Pratap and Julia and grandson of Suresh (Mathews John) and Sunu, my longtime friends in Toronto. The other was to conduct a Holy Qurbana at St. John’s Orthodox Church, Hamilton on invitation from vicar Rev. Fr. Blesson and my UTC friend Sam Kurian. There are quite a few friends for me in Canada.
