Bala Samajam

AKHILA MALANKARA BALASAMAJAM is the student portion of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. Balasamajam aims at the integrated personal development of the youth in the Church.

The main objectives are worship, study and virtuous life among all the boys and girls inside the Church.. The Balasamajam was organized on an all Malankara basis in 1982.

Through this programme, an all-round development of personality of the children is accomplished as they are encouraged to study the Holy Bible, the tradition and history of the Church along with their academic studies. The life history of Saints of the church presented before them develops in them a spiritual and moral life aiming the service for the society.

Youth League

The Orthodox Christian Youth Movement (OCYM), the Youth-wing of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Chruch is in its 77th 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.

Movement through the years (Historical Survey)

Looking back, we see the seeds of the Youth Movement planted by the visionary leaders of the church during the latter half of the nineteenth century. A spiritual organisation with the name Yuvajana Sangam was working effectively in various places and parishes along with other organisations like Sunday school, suvishesha sangam etc. They helped a lot to anchor the mother church safely in the storm created by the renewal group.

It was in the year 1933 that the attempts to bring together the local youth fellowships and to start a Parish-Centred Syrian Yuvajana Sangam, (Youth league) was materialized with the active leadership of Joseph Mar Severios Valakuzhyil Episcopa (President) and Rev Fr TS Abraham (Secretary).

The historic canference in 1936 held at Mavelikara broadened the vision of the Yuvajana Sangam and the Sangam was established as the official wing of the Church with Metropolitan Geevarghese Mar Philexinos (Puthenkavil Kochu Thirumeni) as president and Clery P E Daniel (Later Daniel Mar Philerinos) as general secretary.

The year 1958 was decisive for the youth in the sense that the annual conference held in Puthupally officially accepted the title 'The Orthodox christian Youth Movement' and initiatives were taken to start a monthly publication with the title Orthodox Youth (now published with the title Orthodox Yuvajanam). The Movement continues its spiritual journey with broader visions and effective Christian youth leadership.

Prayer Fellowship
8:00 pm @ Main hall

The Akhila Malankara Prayer Group Association has been constituted to monitor and streamline the prayer and reading habits of congregations in different prayer groups functioning in the various parishes under the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Christian Church.

The objective of this group is to ascertain the inculcation of firm faith, love of the church and brotherhood and bring about the spiritual, material and educational upliftment of the people. A unit consists of 20-30 heads of families and grown-up men. However, the women and children of these families can participate in these meetings. Once in a week (preferably Sunday) the prayer meetings are conducted at a convenient time in different houses or in a common place of convenience.

Each unit has the vicar of the parish as the president and should have a secretary who should maintain the credit and debit account as well as the report. Once in three months, a common meeting as per the directions of the Vicar is to be convened with a general Secretary to oversee the conduct of the meeting.
