Diocesan Women's Ministry goes beyond borders
The Marth Mariam Samajam (Women's Ministry) of the Northeast American Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church (Queens/Long Island/ Brooklyn Area) collected and donated cloths for a tribal village in Attappady, which is received spiritual care and charitable support from the Monastery of St. Thomas.
The 10 Orthodox Churches in that participated in the project are:
St. Gregorios Orthodox Church or Floral Park, St. Mary’s Orthodox Church of West Sayville, St. Thomas Orthodox Church of Long Island, St. Gregorios Orthodox Church of Elmont, St. Baselios Orthodox Church of Elmont, St. Basil Orthodox Church of Franklin Square, St. Mary’s Orthodox Church of Jackson Heights, St. Stephens Orthodox Church of Long Island, St. Baselios Orthodox Church of Brooklyn and St. Thomas Orthodox Church of Dover.
The Monastic Community of St. Thomas and the Aarogya Poshanam Project in Attappady offered their prayers and gratitude to His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, Metropolitan, Rev. Fr. T. A. Thomas, Vice President, and all office bearers of Marth Mariam Samajam, including the General Secretary and Regional Secretary of this dynamic ministry, and the charity coordinator.
This charitable drive would not have been possible without the hard work of the Vicars & members of these churches, and unit Secretaries, for their help.
