Prelate Begins 2014-2015 School Visits at Chamlian


On Monday, August 18, 2014, Prelacy Schools opened their doors to commence the 2014-2015 academic year, a historic year marked by the forthcoming centennial the Armenian Genocide. Opening ceremonies included prayers and blessings by local pastors, who also read the back to school message of H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate.

His Eminence presided over opening day festivities at Vahan and Anoush Chamlian School. He was accompanied by Rev. Fr. Vazken Atmajian and Rev. Fr. Gomidas Torossian.

The Prelate began his message by first thanking God for granting a restful summer vacation and for the opportunity to collectively begin the new school. His Eminence greeted the new principal, Dr. Talin Kargodorian, and wished her success in her new mission. The Prelate also wished the administrators, educators, parents and teachers a productive academic year as the school prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

His Eminence addressed the students on the merit of Armenian Schools, urging them to love this treasured institution they are fortunate to be a part of, to love their teachers, to take in all the knowledge and care provided them, and to give their best in their studies and in all that they do. The Prelate also expressed confidence that administrators, teachers, and parents would diligently carry out their mission to cultivate the hearts and minds of our youth.

The ceremony came to a close with the Prelate’s benediction.

On Friday, August 22nd, the Prelate will preside over the opening ceremony at Tavlian Pre-School in Pasadena.
