Jerry Amaldev show proceeding goes to the poor.

The St. Mary's Syro-Malabar Mission in Rockland has made a donation for the poor in Gorakhpur. Earlier, in last year, the church had initiated a Missionary partnership with the north Indian mission diocese of Gorakhpur. The money was donated from the fund raised through the recent successful Jerry Amaldev show. The check was given by the show committee chairperson Mr. Jacob Chooravady during the General body meeting of the church on Aug. 2nd, 2015 to Mar Thomas Thuruthimattom, the Bishop of Gorakhpur diocese during his visit to the Rockland Mission. 
Mar Thuruthimattam has offered the Mass with the St. Mary's church to thank God for all the prayerful support in the past year. Members have made collections to build up an orphanage in Gorakhpur for about 40 street children. The St. Mary's mission Director Fr. Thadeus said that the partnership with Gorakhpur diocese is an important call from God that all participate in the Mission of the Church in small and big ways, through prayers, visits, service and donations. 

During the meeting, the general body payed its tribute to the Late A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the 11th President of India who passed away on July 27th. Trustee Sajan Thomas in his speech, paid respect and homage to Dr. Kalam and remembered that he was a people's president who was loved and admired by all masses of India and abroad. The general body observed a minute of silence to pay its respect to the late President.
