Garabed Chruch.  His Eminence was accompanied by Executive Council member Mr. Vahan Bezdikian, who is also the Chair of the Prelacy Real Property Committee and has been providing his expertise to this project.

The Prelate and Mr. Bezdikian met with Parish Pastor Archpriest Fr. Avedis Torossian, Parish Council Chair Mr. Adroushan Armenian and members of the Council and Construction Committees.  The Parish representatives reported that the project is reaching its completion and they have already secured the necessary permits to operate the Church.  The marbling of the altar and final touch ups will be completed in the next few weeks.

It is fitting that the consecration will take place about one week prior to the commemoration of the 98th anniversary of the Genocide, given that the Church is also a memorial to the victims of the Genocide.  The main benefactor, Mr. Larry Barnes, dedicated the Church to the memory of his wife Seda Der Garabedian-Barnes and to her ancestors who perished in the Genocide in the region of Van.
