STOTS: St. Thomas Orthodox Theological Seminary is a theological college under the management
of Malankara (Indian) Orthodox Church aimed to nurture leaders who can cater to the spiritual needs and psychological
requirements of the multi linguistic Orthodox diaspora outside Kerala and scattered across the Globe.
It was the vision of Late Lamented H.G. Stephanos Mar Theodosius to have our Holy Liturgical services conducted
in Hindi, English, and other regional languages to help the diaspora community to understand and enjoy the spiritual
beauty of the Holy Sacraments through meaningful participation. Seminary is providing the yeoman service in realizing the dream of
Theodosius Thirumeni and aspirations of Orthodox diaspora community.
Visit seminary website.
During 2018, STOTS is planning to install a Solar Plant at a cost of about RS 21 lakhs,
which is expected to meet the energy needs of the Seminary. This investment will be paid back in less than three years,
considering the current monthly energy cost of about Rs 60,000 being paid to the Electricity Board. This plant once installed will
be a great support for the day-to-day functioning of the Seminary.
Kindly contribute generously for this cause.

in the spirit of Christ, men and women, to be committed leaders, dedicated ascetics and exemplary witnesses within
the orthodox ethos; who will consistently endeavor to enable members of the church, especially in the Diaspora,
to uphold, practice and propagate the Holy Orthodox faith; who will minister to the Church and society responding
to the emerging needs and challenges; and who will participate in, and inspire the Church in her God-given mission in India and abroad.
STOTS needs Friends: STOTS needs our constant prayer and support to meet the aspirations and ambitions of diaspora community.
A team of dedicated achenmar and staff members are staying in this village at STOTS campus serving the Holy Church
for the future generations. They have limited resources to fully utilize their potential. They need help.
If the financial requirements of STOTS can be taken care of by its friends, this dedicated team
can concentrate more on the academics and objectives of the Seminary. STOTS is looking for friends - individuals, parishes, organization -
who can be a part of this team by making financial donations, one time or regularly. Please help.
