Practice what you preach: Mar Polycarpos to youngsters
Maha Edavaka Muscat’s MGOCYM activities for 2011-12 formally opens

MUSCAT: The activities of the Mar Gregorios Orthodox Christian Youth Movement (MGOCYM), Muscat for 2011-2012 were formally inaugurated after the Holy Qurbana on April 29, 2011 by Yuhanon Mar Polycarpos, Metropolitan of Angamali Diocese and President of Orthodox Christian Youth Movement at St Thomas Church, Ruwi.

In his inaugural speech, the Metropolitan reiterated that the youth are the backbone of the church. However, they can work fruitfully only if they work in co-ordination with others.

We give our ear to good teachings but only when we go by it, life becomes meaningful. Mere listening is not enough, he said and added that it should be accompanied by good deeds in our day-to-day life. His Grace based his address from the book of Psalms 34:8 and Mark 6:1 onwards.

Mar Polycarpos lit the traditional lamp signalling the beginning of the activities for 2011-12.

Fr James Geevarghese, Vicar, Mar Gregorios Orthodox Maha Edavaka, Muscat delivered the welcome speech. Shaiju K Philip, a member of the youth committee presented a bouquet to Mar Polycarpos.

Byju Babu John, Secretary, gave a brief account of the MGOCYM activities in the month of April as well as the proposed activities for the New Year.

Church co-trustee Cherian P Thomas felicitated the youth of the church for their stupendous work and wished them good luck in the New Year.

MGOCYM Vice President Mathew K A proposed a vote of thanks.

Fr Varghese George, Church Trustee Abraham Mathew, Co-Trustee Cherian P Thomas and Secretary Joseph Varghese also graced the occasion.
