Institutional Distinctiveness

The primary aim of the college, at the time of its inception was to perpetuate the sacred memory of Kuriakose Mar Gregorios (Pampady Thirumeni), the saintly Metropolitan of the Kottayam Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Church. The College bears the name of the Patron saint and tries to do justice to his vision and mission.

In keeping with the vision of the late lamented Metropolitan, whose life was a glowing beacon of charity and compassion, the college specially caters to the weaker sections of society.

As the College is situated in the rural background of the Kottayam town, most of our students are from economically as well as socially marginalized sessions. The institution caters to their immediate needs through various charity projects inside and outside the College. This year the fund raised by conducting the College Carnival ( a dance and musical intercollegiate- inter school fiesta organized along with the College’s Annual Sports Meet) through distributing lucky draw coupons, setting up of departmental stalls for food and games by auctioning, is utilized for renovating the house of one of our girl students in the Science stream. The College MGOCSM unit, a secular students’ wing actively participates in Community extension programs and their flagship program ‘Fast a Day, Feast a Friend’ is one to be mentioned with special regard. Every year a particular day is earmarked for collecting voluntary financial contributions from the college community and the fund raised through this, is handed over to the Principal to distribute to the needy hands among the students. The Teaching faculty came together in contributing to the renovation of the flood affected household of one of our supporting staff members in Kuttanad, the worst affected place during the 2018 floods, through their staff club contribution.
