27 February, 1881: (M.E. Kumbham 15, 1056): The Metropolitan suspended several vicars for solemnizing a marriage on Sunday morning. One of the Vicars of the Maramon Parish solemnized the marriage of his son a deacon on a Sunday morning with the help of another priest. All three of them were suspended from official duties for violating the fourth Commandment (Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy).
