For the second year in a row, Church Unity Week was celebrated at Mesrobian Armenian Catholic High School, this time from January 18th to 25th. A special gathering was held on this occasion, organized by the school’s office in charge of religious affairs, during which the students of Mesrobian were able to discover the history of the three branches of the Armenian Church and the notion of the unity of Christians.
 

The Reverend Father Hrayr Cholakian, the Archimandrite Supreme Father Paren Vartanian, the parish priest of St. Savior Archimandrite Friar Berj Sabeh and the supervisor of the school’s Religious Affairs Father Raffi Hovhanessian spoke at this gathering in the Saint-Savior church.


The Armenian clergymen explained to the students that the Church is one, with all of its branches. They presented the essential principles of the Armenian faith. These unite the Armenian believers in a same body, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The idea that Armenian religious organizations seek the same goal of making Christ known to people was emphasized, since only by knowing him can one deserve the celestial kingdom. The speakers said that what unites Christians is decisively greater than what separates them, and it is on this reliable foundation that the strength of the Church rests.


Father Raffi Hovhanessian thanked all the participants and organizers of the gathering as well as the professor of religion Salpi Kechichian, and expressed his wish that the students of Mesrobian live their lives and always think in harmony with the spirit of unity.
 

The gathering ended with a prayer for the unity of Christians.
