In keeping with a longstanding tradition, on Thursday, November 21, 2019, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, visited Richard Tufenkian Pre-School and Kindergarten to participate in the annual Thanksgiving celebration-luncheon hosted by Director Arsine Aghazarian and faculty. He was accompanied by Archpriest Fr. Vazken Atmajian. In attendance were School benefactors Mr. and Mrs. Ralph and Savey Tufenkian School, members of the St. Mary’s Church Board of Trustees and School Board, teachers, and parents.

The Prelate first visited classrooms where students enthusiastically greeted him in the spirit of Thanksgiving and together they offered prayers. The celebration continued with a luncheon in the hall where Kindergarten students presented songs dedicated to Thanksgiving and to the School’s upcoming 45th anniversary. Of special note was an anthem the students sang dedicated to the 45th anniversary. The cutting of the anniversary cake followed by the Prelate, benefactors, and administration.

The Prelate delivered his message expressing spiritual contentment for the festive holiday atmosphere, and commended and blessed the School family and the young students. Echoing the theme of thankfulness in the songs the students presented, His Eminence gave thanks to God for the Armenian language, history, and faith they learn at their school, and concluded by urging them to love their school and their parents more than they already do and to always give thanks to the Lord.
