Mar Gregorios Orthodox Christian Student Movement
Mar Gregorios Orthodox Christian Student Movement (MGOCSM) is the student wing of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. The students and senior leaders of our church who were residing in Madras (Chennai), India in the early part of this century felt the need for an organization to bring together our students in various colleges and high schools with a view to deepening their spiritual life and to create in them a livelier sense of fellowship. So they founded the Syrian Student Conference in 1907 and first conference was convened on January 1st, 1908 at Tiruvalla, Kerala, India. Annual conferences have been a regular feature since that year. The Syrian student conference, the parent organization, assumed its present name MGOCSM in 1960. it is the oldest Christian student organization in India. its motto is Worship – Service – Study.
MGOCSM have been maintaining inter-disciplinary contacts in the academic field for along time by the formation of its wings. There are college student’s wing, high school student’s wing, University teacher’s association, School teacher’s association, Medical Auxiliary, Technical Auxiliary, Missionary forum, Literary forum, Publication wing, and etc.
The Orthodox Christian Youth Movement (OCYM), the Youth-wing of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Chruch is in its 71st year of active leadership and Christian witness in the Church and society. It contributes to the goodness and progress of the Church and community in the three-fold path of worship, study and service. It aims at moulding the minds and visions of the youth against the background of the contemporary issues.
