Marth Mariam Samajam

President : Rev. Fr. Dr. Samuel K. Mathew

Secretary : Jessy Mathew

Treasurer : Annamma Varghese


Marth Mariam Samajam is the association of women in the Malankara Orthodox Church with Blessed Virgin Saint Mary as the patron Saint. 'Marth' is the feminine form of 'Mar' which means Saint in Syriac language. So Marth Mariam Samajam association named after St. Mary.

The Samajam mainly aims at spiritual growth of women. The motto of the Samajam is "Pray, Act and Shine." Jesus taught us to pray, asked us to help the needy and called us to be the "light of the world". As Samajam members try to follow that in their daily life.

The meetings are conducted twice a month after the celebration of the Holy Qurbana, MMVS members gather at the church and worship God by reading the Bible, singing devotional songs and sharing messages. They also support charitable organizations here and in India. Marth Mariam Samajam has an integral role in the growth of St. Mary’s Orthodox Church. May the intercession of St. Mary be a stronghold for all of us.
