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.
