Tomin Mathew Thomas (Conference Attendee from Illinois )

I Have to Say this Year's MGOCSM Chicago & Detroit (also Cleveland and Toronto) at Goshen College Indiana Was a True Blessing for me and i hope all those participated or volunteered to help it was my first conference.

The Theme was Abide in Christ i would like to thank our Main Speaker Rev.Fr. Alexander Kurien for i hope inspiring or teaching us all something valuable at this conference and i hope you have a wonderful vacation in California.

Next i would like to thank Matthew Poozhikunnel and Jerry Idicula the council members from both areas and their respective area committee and our core team for being able to organize and coordinate this event.

This conference was a great time to have fellowship between those i know from my area and those new friends I have made from Detroit and for those mainly from area that did not get the chance to go or chose not whatever reasons it may truly missed out on a wonderful experience



Ryan Thomas ( Conference Attendee)


It was a great blessing to participate in the joint summer conference and to Abide in Christ with my brethren from Chicago and Detroit! The conference was filled with great workshops and memories that I will never forget. Glory to God for such a great conference, and a huge thank you to all of the speakers and anyone who helped make this conference a huge success!

One place I won't forget is the Tunnel of Goshen, and if you were at the conference you'd know what I'm talking about and why I love it! Many great times in that tunnel, but this was the best one.

Listen to the songs below.We sang this on a Friday night in a tunnel that was under a railroad which passed through the campus. We fell in love with the tunnel's acoustics so much that we decided to do this
