The Synod of the Syro-Malabar Church held here has urged the leaders of All-Kerala Catholic Congress (AKCC) to spread the activities of the organisation to all dioceses and to emerge as a platform for youth.

The Synod also approved the revised bylaw of the AKCC. The steps to be taken for the spiritual uplift of Syro- Malabar Catholics living abroad were also discussed. The Synod observed that religious organisations should join hands with the government to fight violence and corruption. The Synod urged the government to provide reasonable relief to the victims of natural calamities in Iritty, Pulloorampara and Kadavoor.

The government was also urged to ensure that the agriculture land is protected as the High-Speed Rail Corridor Project comes up. The Synod expressed its condolence over the tanker tragedy in Kannur which claimed 15 lives. Further, it decided to confer the title of ‘Vaidikaratnam’ to Fr Jacob Eranad and ‘Malpan’ to Msgr. Mathew Vellanikkal. P T Kuriakose, K T Sebastian, Cyriac Thomas, A T Devasia and John Kachiramattom will be conferred ‘Syro-Malabar Sabhatharam’. Forty two bishops of the Church took part in the Synod.
