About


The Mar Gregorios Syrian Orthodox Student Association (MGSOSA) was established as an effort to provide the youth and young adults of the Malankara Syrian Orthodox church in North America with spiritual nourishment and programming, and opportunities for fellowship. Since its inception, MGSOSA has grown both in membership and in programming. The MGSOSA Archdiocesan executive board oversees the regional planning teams across the United States and Canada, with the United States currently having five regions (Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, South, and West). The regional level teams oversee parish level teams in their respective regions. Each regional team conducts many types of programs annually, from sports tournaments to seasonal spiritual retreats, and volunteering events. The MGSOSA Archdiocesan team annually hosts a leadership conference for all youth and young adult leaders, and another conference alongside the Annual Youth and Family Conference, hosted by the Archdiocese of the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church in North America.
