Renewal of heart is crucial
Ian Wilson, from the Ordinariate of
Our Lady of the Southern Cross,
was ordained a deacon in St Francis
Xavier’s Cathedral by Bishop of Port
Pirie Greg O’Kelly SJ on March 26.
About 60 people, including
evangelical Christians, Anglicans,
Catholic clergy and laity, and
members of the Adelaide
Ordinariate attended the ordination
Bishop Greg O’Kelly said that as
Ian and his wife Nan had been
married for 25 years Nan should
say whether she approved the
ordination. She was also asked to
assist Deacon Nick Kerr in clothing
Ian in his vestment.
The Ordinary Monsignor Harry
Entwistle gave a brief address,
where he related the borrowings of
the Ordinariate to the borrowings of
Jesus throughout his ministry, but
stressed the group’s essential unity
with the whole Catholic Church.
Deacon Ian Wilson said he was very
pleased with the warm welcome
he and his wife Nan and their
Ordinariate community had received
from people in the Archdiocese of

An Indian Bishop who recently visited the Syro-
Malankara Catholic faithful in Adelaide will later
this month be installed as the first leader of a
new exarchate in India.
Pope Francis has appointed Curia Bishop
Thomas Mar Anthonios Valiyavilayil as the first
bishop of the newest apostolic exarchate for
the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church. He will be
enthroned Apostolic Exarch (patriarch’s deputy)
of St John Chrysostom of Khadki on May 30.
The new exarchate spreads across six states in
south-west India, excluding Kerala, and includes
27 parishes, with 21 priests, 13 convents and
12 schools. It is the second exarchate of the
Syro-Malankara Catholic Church, the first being
established by Pope Benedict in the United
States in 2010.
While in Adelaide for five days in March, Bishop
Thomas Mar Anthonios said he was grateful to
the Australian Catholic Church for its inclusivity
of all Catholic rites. The Syro-Malankara
Catholic Church is an Eastern Catholic Church in
full communion with the Pope.
Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson was the first
Australian bishop to appoint a chaplain for the
Syro-Malankara community in October 2013.
Father Stephen Kulathumkarott, from Kerala, has
been serving as spiritual leader in Adelaide since
“The Australian Church has such a generous
understanding of the diversity of the Catholic
Church and supports the ecclesial identity of
the Church, and so it also supports the Syro-
Malankara Church in that way,” said Bishop
Thomas Mar Anthonios.
He said he was pleased to be in Adelaide to visit
the local Syro-Malankara community and support
the work of Fr Stephen.
“The community, though small, has grown,” he
said. “They are happy that they have a priest
to take care of them and they feel that they are
not left alone when they leave their country and
