Sunday School Vartavar Concert

On Sunday 21 July, the children of our Sunday School, with the participation of students from Galstaun College, AGBU Alexander Primary and Alex Manoogian Saturday Schools presented a delightful concert on the occasion of Vartavar filled with recitations and songs depicting the glorious radiance of Jesus at the Transfiguration. The students also explained the festivities and traditions in Armenia of water-dowsing, handing out roses and fresh produce that are associated with the pagan observance of Vartavar when offerings were made to the goddess Asdghig to celebrate the harvest time.

At the conclusion of the concert Bishop Najarian expressed his joy and impressiveness of such a full and polished performance that was befitting of an end of year school concert. He commended the children and parents for their dedication, thanked the teachers with special credit to Yeretsgin Hasmik for heading the project.
