Welcome to the First and Official Site of the Andheri Charter of the MGOCSM or in expanded means 'The Mar Gregorios Orthodox Christian Students Movement and the mother parish, The St. John's Orthodox Church. This Site caters to both serving as reference for our faithful as well as provides excellent insight for the one who is completely uninitiated.

Christianity is our Faith, Orthodoxy our Liturgy, Malankara Orthodox our Dominion, The Catholicos of the East our Leader and St. John's Orthodox Syrian church our Parish.

The MGOCSM is a fully functioning students Wing within the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. We are part of the Malad Zone in the Bombay Diocese headed by H. G Geevarghese Mar Coorilose.

This Site however goes way beyond MGOCSM-ANDHERI. Our members have collectively put up this greatly informative web portal which gives deep insights into not only our Organization and Church but also Christianity as a whole and Orthodoxy in particular. It caters to provide Quality Christian Information Centrally. Please give us information and suggestion on topics you would like to see covered here.

The parish is concentrating all resources on establishing it's own premises. Anybody wishing to donate monetarily for various maintenance work to be carried out on the site is welcome.
