Last week, Fr. Abraham returned to St. Nersess Armenian Seminary to give a presentation on the history, meaning, and structure of sharagans to 25 youth attending the High School Summer Conference B session. St. Nersess’ youth conferences allow students to explore their faith and the heritage of the Armenian Church with friends in a safe, fun and unique environment. Clergy and lay church leaders instruct the participants in the fundamentals of the Armenian Church’s faith and traditions, and they encourage frank discussion about issues important to young people. Among the participants during this session were our own youth – Adam Anasa, Armen Demirjian, Taline Deukmedjian and Gregory Manuelian.
