Chamlian Graduating Class Visits the Prelacy

In accordance with a tradition established years ago, on the morning of Friday, March 13, 2015, the graduation class of Vahan and Anoush Chamlian School visited the Prelacy to receive the blessings of H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, prior to their class trip to Armenia and graduation. The forty-two students were accompanied by Principal Dr. Talin Kargodorian, Vice-Principal Mrs. Rita Kaprielian, teachers and parents. Joining the Prelate were Rev. Fr. Boghos Tinkjian and Archpriest Fr. Nareg Pehlivanian.

Upon their arrival, the students first entered the “St. Dertad and St. Ashkhen” Chapel to kiss the Bible, after which they headed to the “Dikran and Zarouhie Der Ghazarian” Hall where they presented a program of songs, dance, and recitations.

The Prelate welcomed and commended the students for their touching presentations. His Eminence noted that their upcoming trip to Armenia is all the more meaningful this year as it coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Genocide, and also explained the canonization ceremony that will be conducted in Etchmiadzin on April 23rd.

The Prelate also spoke to the students about the meaning and purpose of Lent, explaining that it is a time for spiritual renewal, fortification, and cleansing, and in conclusion urged the youth to heed the commandments of our Lord, to be obedient, studious, and to keep from wrongdoing.

The visit came to a close with “Cilicia” and the Armenian national anthem. Prior to their return to school, the students were given Genocide Centennial commemorative posters by the Prelate.
