Orthodox Christian youth Movement(OCYM)

The Orthodox Christian Youth Movement (OCYM), the youth wing of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, is in its 80th 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  contemporary issues.

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 organisation 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.
