Prelacy Choir Participates in 11th Annual “Orthodox Day of Praise”

On Saturday, May 19, 2018, St. Peter and St. Paul Coptic Orthodox Church in Santa Monica hosted the 11th annual Orthodox Day of Praise, bringing together the Coptic, Armenian, Indian Malankara, Ethiopian, Greek, Ukrainian, and Serbian Orthodox Churches for a day of fellowship, praise, and celebration of shared faith.

The day began with Divine Liturgy, followed by brunch during which members of the different churches had an opportunity to meet one other. The program followed, during which each choir presented a few hymns and songs in their respective languages.

By the directive of H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, the Western Prelacy “Lousavorich” Choir, under the direction of Rev. Fr. Ghevont Kirazian, once again participated in this annual event.

Choir member Karekin Kirazian conveyed the greetings of the Prelate and gave some background information on the hymns and songs which the choir would be presenting, noting that the first song is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the first Republic of Armenia. The choir thereafter presented their program, which included “Oh Armenian land,” “Since Cradle,” “Lord have mercy,” and “Blessed is the Lord.”
