A special blessing service of 2015 newborns in our community took place in the Church of Holy Resurrection on Sunday 13 December 2015 presided by His Grace Bishop Haigazoun Najarian, organised by the Parish Priest and Church Council.

The invitation brought together more than 40 infants born throughout 2015 with their parents before the Holy Altar which became a symbolic occasion to celebrate the rebirth of the Armenian people on the Centenary of the Armenian Genocide acclaimed by His Grace as the ‘Year of Life’.

It was a sight to behold and inspiring too see the participation of so many which continued from the Church to the Edgarian hall for a reception when Bishop Najarian gifted small crosses and certificates to each infant.
