Early in the 20th Century, a young Syrian Jacobite student of the MD School in Kottayam made a vow, that he will dedicate his entire life for the uplift of the community through the education and sanctification of its clergy. A few years later, now a priest working in Serampore University, he spent all his salary to educate young men in various levels of clerical life and to the renovation of MD School which he wanted to bring up as a seat of Clerical education. Still a few years later, as a bishop newly reunited the Catholic Church, wrote a letter to the Holy See, asking for assistance for founding a new Theological Seminary. Through the two decades in which he was at the helm of the young Syro-Malankara Catholic Church, he did his best to give the best education to his priests. It was after thirty years of his demise that his dream of founding a Major Seminary was realized.. And we live his dream… the dream of Servant of God, Archbishop Mar Ivanios.
