Catholic Youth of St. Alphonsa Church, popularly known SMYM, is a youth group that has come together and is ardently working for the betterment of the community. We are approximately 30 members of St. Alphonsa Church. All those who have completed 10th are welcomed to be a part of SMYM until they are married. Activities Every year, Alpha Youth actively participates and conducts various activities in the church. Organizing feasts, annual competitions for catechism students, raising funds by setting up stalls and organizing cultural programs are few of the many activities that SMYM does. We also take keen interest in being a part of events, competitions and meetings organized by other churches and Christian Youth Associations across Bangalore. Being Malayalees, every year we celebrate Onam, the grand festival of Kerala in our church. This is the time when the youth of our church come together to blend tradition and culture in their own fashion. We arrange beautiful pookkalam and perform Thiruvathira Kali on the occasion of Onam celebrations. SMYM not only participated, but also won many awards in various Inter-Youth competitions organized by other parishes. We also organize trips for our members every year, which help us build stronger bonds with each other and with our new members. With God's grace and the blessings of our elders, SMYM hopes to continue working for the betterment of our parish ".
