Ferrahian School 8th Grade Class Visits the Prelacy

At the start of each year, the 8th grade class of Ferrahian School pays a visit to the Prelacy where they present a cultural program, receive the blessings and hear the message of H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate. This year’s visit took place on Friday, February 2, 2018. The 42 students, accompanied by Principal Mrs. Sossi Shanlian and teachers, were welcomed by the Prelate, who was joined by Very Rev. Fr. Torkom Donoyan, Vicar General, Archpriest Fr. Nareg Pehlivanian, and Rev. Fr. Movses Shannakian.

The visit began at the “St. Dertad and St. Ashkhen” Chapel where clergy sang the hymn dedicated to Vartanants, given that the Feasts of Sts. Ghevontiants and Sts. Vartanants were to be commemorated in the following days. The Prelate also gave a brief explanation of the paintings of Sts. Vartanants, St. Gregory the Illuminator, King Dertad, and St. Sahag and St. Mesrob adorning the Chapel’s walls.

The visit continued at “Dikran and Zarouhie Der Ghazarian” Hall, where the students presented a program of songs, recitations, dance, and piano pieces dedicated to the Battle of Avarayr and the Artsakh liberation movement.

The Prelate commended the students for their performances and the teachers for the instruction they are providing to our youth, and then answered questions posed by the students on various topics relating to the Catholicosate, Prelacy, the Sis lawsuit, and general ecclesiastical matters. His Eminence commended the students’ curiosity and interest, and noted that such visits serve as opportunities for them to renew their allegiance to our faith, nation, and heritage as well as the strengthening of the Prelacy-School bonds. The Prelate stated the expectation for our students to become active contributors to the life of our nation when they become adults as well as to society in general, and highlighted the role of our Armenian Schools in this regard. Finally, he urged the students to truly comprehend the value of the Armenian Church and School and pledge to remain faithful to our church and nation.

The students presented a gift to the Prelate, while His Eminence gifted copies of the Prelacy’s newly published Divine Liturgy booklet. The visit came to a close with the benediction, followed by “Cilicia” and the Armenian national anthem, after which students toured the Prelacy.
