Mar  Gregorios Orthodox Christian Student  Movement (MGOCSM)

History of  MGOCSM

The origin of Mar Gregorios  Orthodox Christian Student Movement (MGOCSM)  can be traced as far back as to 1908. Its  precursor is the Syrian Student Conference  formed by a group of Orthodox high school  and university students in Madras, India  (Chennai). The objectives of the Syrian  Student Conference were to engage the  students in a structured spiritual and  holistic life. Later in 1960, the  organization adopted the name MGOCSM,  after the saint of Malankara, Parumala Mar  Gregorios of Blessed Memory. The units of  MGOCSM were then opened through out the  country. Now there are MOGOCSM units  attached to all the Indian Orthodox  churches. It is a vibrant movement of the  youth in the church.

Motto

The MGOCSM has three  mottos: Worship, Study and Service.  Perhaps the first and most important motto  is worship. The members come together and  worship our God, Jesus Christ, singing and  praying for all His blessings. The second  motto is studying the Holy Bible, orthodox  faith and beliefs. The movement urges the  members to read and study Bible while  excelling in their academic activities.  The third motto of MGOCSM is to provide  service by spreading the Gospel and  helping the poor and the needy.
