St. Mary's Jacobite Christian Charitable Forum, Trivandrum.
- Dear Members,
This has reference to my posting in SOCM messages serial 3690 requesting members to join 'St. Marys Jacobite Christian Charitable Forum, Trivandrum'
Please see the content of the request in the attached file.
We often receive in web requests for circulating Bible quotes, prayers etc., to others. Of course Prayer is a powerful weapon and group mediation is an effective tool.
But are our prayers by itself enough? Are not most of our church's religious activism ends in "Pulpit Evangelism"? Are we not expected to something more?
How many of us are supporting 'St.Paul's Mission doing great evangelical work on behalf of our Church and many charitable institutions of ours that are involved in works of love and compassion?� St. Peter's Charitable Society, Trivandrum is doing great service to the society with its School for Mentally Challenged in Pongummoodu, Trivandrum.�
St. MARY'S JACOBITE CHRISTIAN
CHARITABLE FORUM TRIVANDRUM, is a Philanthropic Association with

- It would be great if you could publish the Bank account details of the CHURCH. Re-sending more detailed Brochure on this Philanthropic Association will be excellent.
Sometime,in todays busy life, It may not be easy for all to find the nearest UPS/Post store/Post Office to send Money orders or to go to bank to get a draft.Also it will be difficult for many to contact over phone or email to get the deatils and then followup to get the fund delivered.
I am sure, SOCM members are not ignoring the request.We need similar
noble efforts to help our community members.Please keep reminding us on supporting this divine mission.
Will it be possible to setup a COMMON PAYPAL account to support these type of Charitable organisations working for well being of our Jacobite community specifically.
All the time,when similar requests are made- It so happens that there is no clear or accurate payment delivery mechanism
- Dear Mr. Abraham,
Thanks for your message in SOCM.
Please see the link containing the brochure of St. Peter's Charitable Society, Trivandrum and an appeal from our beloved H.B Bava Thirumeni regarding this.
St. Peter's Charitable society is a fully government approved set up established by St. Peter's Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church, Trivandrum in the year 1990. The society is doing great service to the society through its School for Mentally Challenged and other philanthropic activities since then.
As can be seen in the brochure, Society has number of short term and long term visions which includes a hospital guidance centre. Construction of the multi-storied building for the school is partially completed and expansion work is in progress.
The source of income is solely the donations from the church members and limited number of benevolent persons.
I would request you to participate in this noble venture in whatever way possible and convey this request to others members of our church there and to your friends and relatives and also in SOCM and other church community web sites. .
