Chamlian School First Grade Class Visits the Prelacy

The Prelacy headquarters has become a pilgrimage site for students of Prelacy Schools who throughout the year visit with their principals and teachers. During these visits, students meet with H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, and receive his blessings and message. They also present a cultural program of songs and recitations.

Continuing in this tradition, on Friday, December 14, 2012, Vahan and Anoush Chamlian first grade students visited the Prelacy accompanied by Vice-Principal Mrs. Rita Kaprielian, teachers, and parents. Given that the day’s religion lesson was on the Birth of Jesus Christ, the teachers thought it appropriate for the students to spend time at the Prelacy and hear the story of His Birth directly from the Prelate.

Upon their arrival, the nearly one hundred students were divided into groups and led to the “St. Dertad and St. Ashkhen” Chapel where they were photographed with the Prelate. They then gathered at the “Dikran and Zarouhie Der Ghazarian” Hall where the students performed a cultural program. In a warm and familial environment, the Prelate then told the story of the Birth of Christ through a slide-show presentation.

The visit concluded with the students presenting the Prelate with gifts, and the Prelate presenting them with an illustrated cards of the Lord’s Prayer card and the Birth of Christ.
