“She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate” (Proverbs 31: 20-21,31)
Martha Mariam Samajam (MMS) is a spiritual organization representing all the women of the church. St Mary, mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, known for being a woman of immaculate grace, faith and obedience is the leading spirit and the guiding light of this organization.
The MMS was formed in the year 2009 to enable the spiritual growth of women to promote Christian beliefs and values among us and our families. All women members of the church are part of this organization. The MMS committee members are elected annually to lead and coordinate the activities for this organization.
The activities of Martha Mariam Samajam compliments the overall functioning of the church and its various spiritual bodies. We believe in the motto “faith with deeds”. Samajam members meet every Sunday at church after the holy mass to read the bible, sing devotional songs and pray for the needy. On every third Sunday of the month, our President and Vicar Rev. Fr. Thomas Kora presides the meeting and provides spiritual leadership.
Members of the organization take part in planning retreats, running home-made food auctions, organizing baby showers, and planning potlucks for various events. We also participate in various volunteering and charity activities in the city and in the church throughout the year.
Please join us in prayer for the continuing guidance of the Holy Spirit in all of our activities.
