Catholicosate of Cilicia
Antelias - Lebanon
6 December 2014. On Saturday, His Holiness Aram I visited the Ohannessian School, which he inaugurated 18 years ago, and was warmly welcomed by the 200 students.
The Catholicos and his delegation of clergy attended a special cultural event prepared by the students, followed by a welcoming speech by the principal of the School, Ms. Angela Sabayan, who described their programme and activities. V. Rev. Mesrob Sarkissian also spoke of the role of the school in serving the communities in Dubai and Sharjah.
In his message, His Holiness thanked the parents for sending their children to the Armenian School, because, he said, without the Armenian school the community would weaken. He then thanked the board and the faculty for their contribution, and finally expressed his appreciation to Mr. and Mrs. Harout Ohanessian, for constructing the school as well as covering all the costs. His Holiness also thanked the Catholical Vicar Rev. Mesrob for his leadership in the community.
