“Friends, as we celebrate these saints who changed, molded, and influenced us, do you notice a similar quality in their legacies? All of them served with humility and grace and in the interest of others …”
Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar, preaching during the Memorial Service at Northeastern Jurisdictional Conference, Nov. 2, 2022

New England Conference,

I know we are still in shock and so deeply saddened by the passing of our beloved Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar. Bishop Devadhar died unexpectedly on July 18, 2023.  
Bishop Devadhar was a faithful light to our conference; his dedication extending his service into what would have been his retirement. He has left us an indelible legacy that lives on among us even now. 
Our hearts and prayers are with Prema and their family. The family has requested no phone calls at this time, but prayers and letters of condolence can be sent to them at:
7128 Thorndale Lane
Cincinnati, OH 45244
We will share details about the arrangements when those are known.
