"Urshlem" Diocesan Center- Beasley, Texas
We are beginning our journey into the Shoonoyo Nombu which is observed annually from August 1-15 and commemorates the blessed life of the Holy Theotokos. St. Mary is given a place of honor among the Saints as the one who bore God and lived an exemplary life on earth with the virtues of holiness, humility, and obedience. As she continues to stand as a great intercessor for the Holy Church and its members today, let us meditate on her life during this Holy Fast, and seek to imitate her life as we continue on our spiritual journey in this world.
The Morth Mariam Samajam of our diocese continues to grow as an active ministry that contributes highly to the building up of the family and the church as a whole. The diocesan activities and events of this ministry continue to increase each year. We praise God Almighty for the spiritual growth and the considerable amount of charitable contributions that have been initiated by its members. The charitable activities and educational assistance introduced by the MMVS over the years continue to assist many both in India and in North America. The application for upcoming charity projects is now available on our diocesan website and hard copies are also available with each parish unit secretary.
