PRELATE VISITS THE STUDENTS OF HOLY TRINITY CHURCH
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL IN FRESNO

On Monday, July 9, 2012, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, departed for Fresno to visit the annual Vacation Bible School (VBS) organized by Holy Trinity Church.  Each year, this event brings together kids, teens, and adults to discover God’s love for His children through educational and fun activities geared towards our young church members.  This year’s VBS began on Sunday, July 8 and continued until Thursday, July 12.

The Prelate’s visit began with dinner with the children and their parents.  Joining them were Parish Pastor Rev. Fr. Vahan Gosdanian, Board of Trustees Chair Mr. Varoujan Der Simonian and members, Delegates, and Executive Council member Mr. Bill Saatjian.

His Eminence then delivered his message to the children on the theme “SKY: Everything is Possible with God”.  The focus of his message was to trust God at all times; no matter how you feel, where you are, what people do, or what happens, to trust in God.  To teach the children this important message, the Prelate told them about the raising of Lazarus and of the boundless love and power of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Prelate continued his meeting with the children by interacting with them at the different VBS stations.

In the evening, the Prelate had an opportunity to meet with the Church Pastor, Board, Delegates, and Deacons to discuss various issues pertaining to the parish.
