On Sunday, May 18, 2014, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, presided over the ribbon-cutting and official opening ceremony of the “Hacop and Hilda Baghdassarian” Gym at Vahan and Anoush Chamlian School in Glendale.

In his address, the Prelate commended the support of city officials, the diligence of Principal Vazken Madenlian and school administration and Gym Committee members, the support of parents and the Parent-Support Committee, and the generosity of the sponsors, in particular main benefactor Mr. and Mrs. Hacop and Hilda Baghdassarian and lobby benefactor Mrs. Jessica Vartoughian in memory of her husband Vahram, all of whom worked together to make the dream a reality.

His Eminence highlighted the importance of teamwork and perseverance, noting that this and many of the projects we undertake come to fruition with cooperation, collaboration, and commitment.  Citing the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”, the Prelate stated, “Your treasure is your children and our students, therefore, your hearts and our hearts are always with them, and it is for this reason, for their benefit, that this gym was built,”.
