On Wednesday, November 13, Fr. Abraham met with the HMADS 5th and 6th grade students to discuss the meaning of the Church and its importance in the life of every Christian. Der Hayr reminded them that the Armenian Church is not only a religious institution, but also a cultural center where one can learn about his/her heritage. He encouraged the students to join the Junior Choir, Acolyte Training Program and the ACYOA Jrs (when older). Being an active member of the Church makes one feel more connected to God and our own church family.
