MARTHA MARIYAM SAMAJAM
With profound gratitude to the Lord Almighty, Marth Mariam Vanitha Samajam of St. Thomas Orthodox Cathedral Broadway is functioning well under the overall guidance of His Grace Dr.Yuhanon Mar Diascoros and also under the support and leadership of our vicars Rev. Fr. Aji Varghese, Rev.Fr. Biju Mathew and Rev.Fr. P.J .Binu.
The Samajam which is in the name of Saint Mary, is working hard to bring St. Mary’s virtues of humility, love, holiness and faith into the daily life pattern of women through retreats and fasting prayers. We always work to fulfil our motto “Prarthikuka, Pravarthikuka and Prakashikuka”
The Broadway Cathedral has 3 Sub units - Chetpet, Guindy and Mylapore. Meetings are regularly held every month under the leadership of our Vicars. Study Classes are held to learn Holy Bible, Sacraments and faith. We do have a retreat once in a year to strengthen the spiritual lives of women and also helping to have good bonding between all of us. We do actively participate in Regional & Diocesan level events like Singing competition, Elocution and Biblical Quizzes.
As part of the Socio-Spiritual service activities, we make ourselves available in visiting orphanages, sick people at home and hospitals and thereby giving financial support to the needy.
By the grace and mercy of God Almighty, Marth Mariam Vanitha Samajam is working efficiently thereby being a role model for all.--Shantha John
