The Mar Thoma Church is a mission-oriented church and the Mission Board was created by the Mar Thoma Church of San Francisco to lead in the philanthropic efforts in the local neighborhood, the national community, and our motherland.
Over the past years, the Mission Board has conducted several events with the investment of our parishioners. These included events where 10,000 meals were packed for children, 1000 toiletry supply bags were put together for the unsheltered population in the Bay Area, and a virtual food drive that collected donations to provide hot meals for 3000 during the Christmas season.
The parish also has a special interest in the development and success of children in the Mar Thoma mission fields. Over the course of several years, the Mar Thoma Church of San Francisco has been able to support children through the Diocese-led Light to Life. The Mission Board also has an affiliation with the Narasapuram Mission in Andhra Pradesh and has been able to support over 100 children. And in the past, the parish was given the opportunity to support teachers at the Tibetan Border who are educating the children of the mission field.
