Fr. Boghos Tinkjian, Rev. Fr. Vazken Atmajian, and Rev. Fr. Gomidas Torossian.

In his message, the Prelate stressed the importance of having such centers in our community for they serve not only as recreational centers, but as religious, educational, and cultural hubs.  It is important for our youth especially, stated the Prelate, because it gives them a safe and familiar place to congregate and engage in social and educational activities that will enhance their minds, bodies, and hearts.

The Prelate commended the hard work and support of all those involved in the project; the sponsors for their generous contributions, the volunteers who dedicated their time and efforts to ensuring the success of this project, and all the friends and supporters for their encouragement.
