Divine Liturgy and Blessing of Grapes at Ararat Home in Celebration of the Feast of the Assumption

On Thursday, August 9, the Feast of the Assumption of the Holy Mother of God was celebrated at Ararat Home in Mission Hills with Divine Liturgy and the blessing grapes.

The celebration began with the blessing of grapes in the nursing facility, led by the Prelate and with the participation of clergy members.

Divine Liturgy was then celebrated at the Chapel by Archpriest Fr. Hrant Yeretzian, who also delivered the sermon.

At both the nursing facility and the Chapel, the Prelate conveyed his blessings and well wishes to the administration, staff, and residents.

Following the services, the administration hosted the Prelate and clergy members to a luncheon with directors, staff, and residents.


For the past twenty years, each year prior to the Feast of the Assumption of the Holy Mother of God, pastors of St. Mary’s Church visit Glendale Adventist Hospital where they hold a prayer service in the Chapel, bless grapes, meet with the directors, and visit patients to offer prayers and blessed grapes.

This year’s visit took place on the morning of Wednesday, August 8.

The day began with the introduction and welcoming remarks, delivered by Business Data Analyst Amanda Newton and President of Healthcare Foundatino Dro Abrahamian respectively.
