The parish is justly proud and pleased to have one of its own, Rev. Fr. Dr. K. J. Gabriel, consecrated as Metropolitan, His Grace Dr. Gabriel Mar Gregorios, by the Catholicos of the Apostolic Throne of St. Thomas and Malankara Metropolitan, H.H. Baselios Mar Thoma Mathews II, at the Parumala St. Peter and St. Paul Seminary Church on 5th March 2005. We are therefore deeply humbled and rejoice, for this act of consecration gladdens all of us with bright joy.

Ordained as Deacon on November 4, 1969 and as Priest on February 8, 1974, Fr. Gabriel was Vicar of various parishes at Churches in Bombay, Delhi, Kottayam, and Trivandrum Dioceses for over thirty years. He was Registrar and Director of F.F.R.R.D. and competently represented the Church at ecumenical organizations such as Orthodox-Marthoma Dialogue Forum, Orthodox-Lutheran Dialogue Forum, Bible Society Kerala Auxiliary Committee, and Theological Literature Forum.
