It was in June 1931 that I had the privilege of worshipping at Christ church for the first time. I was then a student of the Maharajas College of science present University college) and my father Mr M.C Thomas sought a transfer to Trivandrum to facilitate my college studies.
My pleasant memories during this period are the confirmation classes under by Rev.M.J.Chandy Achen and the consequent laying on of hands by Bishop Rev E.A.L Moore of blessed memory.
It was during this period that Lord Willingdon, Viceroy of India and Lady Willingdon attended a Sunday worship at Christ church.
After Entering government service and working in many stations outside Trivandrum, I returned to Trivandrum in 1949 and the Good Lord granted me the privilege of being a member of Christ church congregation for the last 60 years. May his name be praised.
