“Let no one look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in your speech, conduct, love, faithfulness, and purity”
1 Timothy 4:12
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, we hope to achieve our goals as one and provide a positive direction for the future generations. We aspire to serve the church through activities that spread awareness within our community, strengthen us, and allow us to grow as a church and youth
The youth gather after service every Sunday to foster discussion and to encourage and inspire ideas that will provide the foundation in growing strengthening our youth. Some activities that we have planned for this year include volunteering in soup kitchens, and nursing homes as well as conducting awareness walks, and food and clothing drives. In addition, the youth organize frequent meetings that allow us to come together to pray and worship.
The Youth of St. Mary’s Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church consists of over 30 members who are dedicated to enhance the spirituality of our church. We are headed up by our Secretary Mereena Zachariah and Treasurer Divya Roy.
