MGOCSM / Youth

In the early 20th century, the Malankara Orthodox Church saw the great need to offer spiritual support and resources to our Orthodox Christian students in various high schools and colleges/universities. Under the initiative of a core group of students and senior leaders of the Church, the “Syrian Student Conference” was formed in January of 1907. In 1960 this Syrian Student Conference changed its name to “Mar Gregorios Orthodox Christian Student Movement” (MGOCSM). Under the intercession of St. Gregorios of Parumala, this spiritual organization gathered many students and leaders under the motto of “Worship, Study, Service.”

The following are some of the activities conducted by the MGOCSM/Youth League.
