Tavlian Pre-School Students Visit the Prelacy


On Wednesday, March 13, 2013, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, welcomed to the Prelacy nearly sixty students from Levon and Hasmig Tavlian Pre-School of Pasadena, accompanied by Director Mrs. Helen Manoucherian, teachers and parents.

Upon their arrival the Pre-School and Kindergarten students were escorted to the “St. Dertad and St. Ashkhen” Chapel where they were greeted by the Prelate, who was joined by Crescenta Valley Church Pastor Rev. Fr. Ghevont Kirazian.  The children joined in the singing of the Lord’s Prayer, and hymns from the Lenten Sunrise Service were sung by the Prelate and Fr. Ghevont.

Students then headed to the “Dikran and Zarouhie Der Ghazarian” Hall where they performed a number of songs and recitations.

After the cultural program, the Prelate hosted the students in the “Sulahian” Reception Room.  His Eminence expressed joy for the visit of the children, stating that their presence livened the Prelacy, and commended them for their well-prepared cultural program.  Informing them that His Holiness has proclaimed this year the “Year of the Armenian Mother”, the Prelate advised them to prepare special prayers for their mothers in May in honor of Mother’s Day.  Prior to their departure from the reception room, the students lined up to kiss the cross and receive the Prelate’s blessings.

The visit concluded with a group picture in the Prelacy courtyard.
