Palm Sunday at St. Mary Church


Over the Palm Sunday weekend the Dean and Students of St. Nersess Seminary visited our community. The entire weekend was filled with interesting activities. The Seminarians and members of St. Mary ACYOA Juniors enjoyed the hospitality of Souren and Ema Hakopian, who opened  their doors for an evening of fun and fellowship for our guests.  It was a great opportunity for our Juniors to meet the seminarians in person, mingle with them, ask them questions, and learn about their day at the seminary and about their future plans. 


On Saturday, the seminarians had a private tour of the Museum of the Bible and also had an opportunity to do additional site-seeing  in Washington, DC. On Palm Sunday the Rev. Fr. Mardiros Chevian, Dean of St. Nersess Seminary celebrated Badarak and the Seminarians served on the altar alongside the St. Mary Acolytes and Deacons. 


A beautiful luncheon was organized and hosted by the St. Mary ACYOA Juniors and their parents.  This year our special honoree during the Palm Sunday luncheon was Mrs. Patricia Yeghissian, youth adviser, Sunday School teacher and dedicated parishioner.  The ACYOA Juniors honored her with a musical performance, special prepared remarks, and a plague to commemorate her service to the youth of St. Mary.  Our special appreciation goes out to the ACYOA Juniors parents and teens for their hard work.
