In keeping with a time-honored tradition, on Thursday, December 20, 2018, Vahan and Anoush Chamlian first graders, donning festive holiday attire, paid a visit to the Prelacy where they spread Christmas cheer with their songs, recitations, and season’s greetings. The students, accompanied by Principal Dr. Talin Kargodorian, Vice Principal Mrs. Rita Kaprielian, teachers, and a group of parents, were greeted by H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, who was joined by Archpriest Fr. Nareg Pehlivanian.

The visit began with prayer at the “St. Dertad and St. Ashkhen” Chapel, and continued at “Dikran and Zarouhie Der Ghazarian” Hall. The program began with remarks by a number of students who expressed their joy at visiting the Prelacy and thanked the Prelate for his warm welcome. The young students expressed pride in being Chamlian students and heirs of St. Mesrob Mashdots, and pledged to preserve our language, learn about our history, and be exemplary Armenian students. They concluded by conveying their well wishes on the occasion of the New Year and Christmas.

The Christmas program followed. The students sang carols and presented the story of Christ’s birth intertwined with the tale of the Christmas tree.

Following the program the Prelate blessed and commended the students for their beautiful performance, as well as the teachers and parents for their careful instruction of our youth, noting that through the program, the students took on the role of teacher. At the threshold of the New Year and celebration of the Birth and Revelation of our Lord, His Eminence wished all a bright year ahead with faith, hope, love, and peace.
