Holy Cross Cathedral Hosts Women’s World Day of Prayer


Each year on the first Friday of March, women around the world observe a common day of prayer, known as the World Day of Prayer.  Prelacy faithful also share in this annual event, which this year was held at Holy Cross Cathedral in Montebello with the participation of clergy from the Armenian Apostolic, Catholic, and Evangelical Churches.  The theme of the 44th annual World Day of Prayer was “Streams in the Desert”.  Holy Cross Cathedral Ladies Aid hosted the gathering.

H.E. Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, participated in the service and delivered his message to the faithful.  His Eminence was accompanied by Very Rev. Fr. Muron Aznikian, Archpriest Fr. Nareg Pehlivanian, and Rev. Fr. Ashod Kambourian.

Very Rev. Fr. Muron Aznikian delivered the invocation.  A program of prayers, hymns, Scripture readings, spiritual reflections, and messages in Armenian and English followed.  The program concluded with the Prelate’s message.

His Eminence first expressed thanks to God for the gathering of prayer, worship, and fellowship. Reflecting on the day’s theme of Jesus Christ as the “Living Water”, the Prelate stated that just as water is essential for our bodies, the living water our Savior offers is essential for our spirits, thus, “let us open our hearts to Him and allow the living water to flow within us and quench our spiritual thirst”.  Furthermore, the Prelate called on the faithful to share the good news of God’s promise of salvation and eternal life by letting the rivers of living water flow from within them unto others, inspiring and drawing others to Christ, and especially our younger generations. The service came to a close with the benediction.

A reception followed at “Bagramian” Hall.
