Unveiling of Pasadena Armenian Genocide Memorial

By the invitation of the Pasadena Armenian Genocide Memorial Committee and partner organizations, on Saturday, April 18, 2015 over 1500 people gathered at Memorial Park in Pasadena to witness the unveiling of the Armenian Genocide Memorial. The monument stands sixteen feet tall in the shape of a tripod. Every 21 seconds a drop of water will fall from within the monument, 1.5 million drops annually for each victim of the Armenian Genocide.

Rev. Fr. Muron Aznikian and Archpriest Fr. Nareg Pehlivanian participated in the ceremony on behalf of H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate. Among the participating dignitaries were Congresswoman Judy Chu, former Assemblymember Anthony Portantino, Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, and others.

The Prelate was on a pastoral visit to the Las Vegas parish community at the time. In April of 2014 His Eminence presided over the ground-blessing ceremony and in January of this year over the commencement of construction.
