The head of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, Major Archbishop George Alencherry of Ernakulam-Angamaly, visited CNEWAs New York offices on 25 October as part of his first pastoral visit to the United States since his election in India in May. The 66-year-old major archbishop leads nearly four million Syro-Malabar Catholics around the world, including 75,000 in the United States.
On 24 October, Vincent Mar Paulos, the Syro-Malankara Catholic Bishop of Marthandam in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, met with CNEWAs president, Msgr. John Kozar, in New York. The jovial, 48 year-old bishop is himself a beneficiary of CNEWAs seminarian sponsorship program.
And in September, Cardinal Sean OMalley, O.F.M. Cap., archbishop of Boston, paid a visit to meet the staff and regional directors. Cardinal OMalley serves as a member of CNEWAs board of directors.
