Western Prelacy Ladies Auxiliary Hosts Lecture-Luncheon

Throughout the year the Western Prelacy Ladies Auxiliary organizes a number of cultural and educational events, among them a series of lecture-luncheons featuring presentations by prominent community members on relevant topics. The latest of these lecture-luncheons was held on Thursday, October 15, 2015, at the Prelacy “Dikran and Zarouhie Der Ghazarian” Hall. H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, presided over the event, which featured a presentation by ophthalmologist Dr. Mireille Hamparian on the topic of common eye problems.

The program began with welcoming remarks by Ladies Auxiliary Vice-Chair Mrs. Vartoug Avedikian, who after greeting the Prelate, speaker, and guests, introduced Dr. Hamparian and invited her to present her lecture.

Through a series of slides, Dr. Hamparian presented an interesting and informative lecture in fluent Armenian on common eye problems, covering symptoms and treatment options.

At the conclusion of the presentation the Prelate delivered his message commending the Ladies Auxiliary and Dr. Hamparian. Noted that the event was held on the occasion of Armenian Culture Month, His Eminence invited the guests to utilize our God-given gift of sight for good, to read and familiarize ourselves with the Word of God and with our heritage and become good examples and an inspiration for the younger generations. Catholicos Sahag, St. Mesrob Mashdots, King Vramshabouh, and our holy translators were not only knowledgeable about our faith and language, they put their knowledge to use and illuminated the life of our nation, stated the Prelate, and urged for all to follow in their example.
