Vidhika Sangham

The antecedents of the St.Thomas Orthodox Vaidhika Sanghom can be traced back to the period of St.Gregorios of Parumala. The Saint, whose organizational skills and vision for the Malankara Orthodox Church, were exceptional, called together the first meeting of the Church’s priests into an association. The time period being fraught with several internal and external problems, the clergy association was not an active force. It was revived again during the days of Joseph Mar Dionysius II, the founder of the M.D. Seminary and functioned with varying results. The objective for this association was to constitute a forum where the priests could interact with one another, discuss issues and relay them to the attention of the Holy Synod and collectively organize programmes for their welfare.

The more recent chapter of the Malankara Orthodox Church’s clergy association to further these goals can be placed in 1983 when the clergy were formally called together and proposed the name of the organization as The St.Thomas Orthodox Vaidhika Sanghom (The St.Thomas Orthodox Clergy Association). Its first meeting was held at the St.Peter’s & St.Paul’s Church, Parumala under the guidance of H.G.Dr.Paulos Mar Gregorios and was presided over by the then Catholicos, H.H. Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Mathews I.

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. Ours is the oldest Christian student organization in India. Our motto is Worship – Service – Study.

Our student centers at Kottayam, Trivandrum, Aluva stand as fitting monuments to the continuous and tireless efforts of the movement during the past years. The long cherished dream of other centers at Kothamangalam, Pampady, and Bangalore is also coming to life. Each student center provides hostel facilities in addition to chapel, auditorium, reading room and guest rooms.

Ministry of Human Empowerment

MOHE is a Department of Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. It aims to explore ,enlighten and empower the human potential of the society through various awareness campaigns. The main thrust of this Ministry is Family Empowerment.

In an era of privatization, globalization and urbanization, the lifestyle of human kind has changed tremendously. Technology has made the geography a history. This incredible progress of the society has not just pumped in the comfort and luxury and made mankind techno savvy but ipso facto to all revolving evil in the universe. The de facto of today’s degrading human standard is due to the erosion of values, disintegration of families, drug addiction, gay and lesbian issues, Satan worship etc. In order to improve the life style, modus operandi of living need to be rectified with deep rooted Christian values, moral policing, righteous and fruitful life. The Ministry of Human Empowerment (MOHE) through its various projects endeavors to empower and enrich our families. The MOHE is neither a governmental organization nor religious group, spiritual organization /association but a distinct department of Malankara Orthodox Church.
