Fr. Abraham Maret, Vlyachan, as he was popularly known, was the vicar of St. Mary's Church, Kallooppara, for a long period of time. He was an accomplished religious person, a truely devoted, highly deciplined and knowledgeable priest, who knew and practiced all the commandments literally and in spirit; and enforced all the canons of the Orthodox Dinomination in their full meaning and depth.
He was recognised by PARUMALA THIRUMENI as one of the most accomplished FATHER in the Orthodox Dinomination. And Abraham Maret is said to have been carrying out the routine Confessions of Parumala Thirumeni. The forty-one day's Services after the death of PARUMALA THIRUMENI were also graced by Fr. Abraham Maret, and he stayed in Parumala for all the forty-one days, for this reason. Fr. Abraham Maret was having very deep knowledge in syriac.
Fr. Abraham Maret wanted to distance himself from all the worldly life and luxuries during his last days and for this purpose he laid the foundation stone for a Prayer Room in his own land to the west of present St. Stephen Church, and this is where the small cross is now situated. Somehow before he could fulfill his wishes he passed away at the age of 55 on 13-5-1916.
