The Orthodox Christian Youth Movement of the East. (OCYM)
St.Thomas Orthodox Cathedral, Dubai Unit
A group of young members of the St. Thomas Cathedral, Dubai or St. Thomas church as it was then known felt that it was crucial to form a unit of the Orthodox Christian Youth Movement in our parish to promote fellowship and to devote themselves more to their spiritual development. Right from the very beginning, the new spiritual organization took an active part in all the activities organized by the parish including service oriented initiatives, retreats and church functions such as Good Friday, Christmas etc. As a unit, the Dubai OCYM unit has set in motion several path-breaking initiatives such as "Edify Care" to support needy students, "Venalshibhiram", a program to educate young children here on traditional and rural life in Kerala, awards to recognize social activism, art and cultural competitions and awards to encourage academic excellence in students .
