Martha Maryam (Vanitha) Samajam was founded in 1920 aimed at the spiritual progress of women of the Malankara Orthodox Church. St. Mary is venerated as its patron Saint. It was started under the patronage of the Late Very Rev. M.C.Kuriakose Ramban and with the leadership of K.M Annamma and co-workers.
‘MMVS Ghaziabad’ is an active body of women around 30 in number within the parish who allocate a portion of their time for not only biblical discussion and spiritual engagement but also general affairs that matter to their day-to-day life. The priests also engage by sharing their knowledge on doctrines of the church and responding to meaningful interjections made by the members of the unit. They have ensured their active participation in all events at the unit and diocesan levels. Examinations that are held at the diocesan level annually see many of them being able to excel through their knowledge of the bible and orthodox worship. Other activities of the group include prayers for sick people, hospital visits, charity work, etc.
