About Our Youth league
The Orthodox Christian Youth Movement (OCYM), the Youth-wing of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church is in its 75 th 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. OCYM wing of our parish is a gathering of youth and it is the spiritual platform for demonstrating the talents of the young blood.
The Vicar of the parish is the President of the unit. A committee, selected annually, headed by the Secretary carries out the routine activities of the unit.
"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity…"
-1 Timothy 4:12
