CBCI  09 October,2017(CBCI)

 

It is with great sadness and sorrow  that I  have to inform you that our beloved Bishop Patrick Nair has returned to the  Heavenly Father at 7.10 this evening, 7 October 2017 . He was  85 years old. 

 

He was admitted to Max Hospital Dehra Dun on 11th September 2017 and later shifted to Mayath Indris Medical College Hospital, Dehra Dun  where he passed away.

 

Details of funeral arrangements are awaited and will be communicated later.

 

We pray for the repose of his soul and entrust him to our Lady of Rosary whose feast we celebrate  today, praying that she welcomes him to the heavenly company. 

 

We thank God for many years of  dedicated labour which Bishop Patrick gave to  God  and  His Church as Priest and Bishop.

 

May his Soul  find Peace in God.
