In school tradition, students and staff attended the Armenian Apostolic Church of Holy Resurrection on Sunday 10th February 2013. They joined the Mass, received blessings and Holy Communion on the occasion of ‘Vartanank’ and start of the new school year.
During the sermon, His Grace Bishop Haigazoun Najarian reflected on the liturgical calendar of the past week, as the church had come to celebrate the Feasts of St Vartan, St Ghevont and Presentation of Our Lord to the Temple (Diarentarach). Like the heroes of Vartananst, the students received Holy Communion and parents presented their children to the church just as our Lord was presented on the fortieth day of His birth. Congratulations to all the children who displayed exemplary behaviour both during and after the church service. They took part with the congregation by praying, singing the hymns and by following the Divine Liturgy.
