Marth Mariam Samajam Leadership Training Program

The Leadership Training Program held under the auspices of the Marth Mariam Samajam of the Northeast American Diocese will continue to be held this year at four campuses. The decision to conduct the program in different areas is taken with a view to creating awareness of the program among our people and to encourage their participation. Muttontown campus is set for Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island; Rockland Campus for Rockland and Upstate; New Jersey campus for New Jersey and Staten Island and Boston campus for Boston, Bronx, Connecticut and Westchester. A registration fee of $75 will be collected to offset the expenses for text books as well as breakfast, lunch and evening snacks for three days. The Samajam Secretaries are requested to communicate the names of prospective registrants from their respective parishes to the Regional Coordinators who in turn will convey such information to the Program Coordinator. All classes will be conducted by Professors who have expertise and experience in teaching. Our Diocesan Metropolitan, His Grace Zachariah Mor Nicholovos, has agreed to conduct the concluding leadership sessions at the two newly added campuses, namely those in Boston and Orangeburg. All efforts will be made to accommodate those who want to participate in those concluding sessions, regardless of the campuses they are assigned to, provided their names are communicated in advance to the Program Coordinator. It is our hope that the members of our Martha Mariam Samajam will make use of these opportunities offered by the Leadership Programs to learn more about our Church, its Faith and Traditions.
