Antelias - Lebanon
20 March 2016. Following the Palm Sunday Liturgy, celebrated by Archbishop Kegham Khatcherian, a large number of parents and children joined the procession within the Monastery, led by the seminarians and followed by the priests and His Holiness Aram I.
At the end of the procession, the Catholicos said that celebrating the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem reminds us of the Armenian nation’s triumph over adversity in Armenia, Karabagh and the Diaspora. He beseeched the Almighty to help us continue to flourish as a nation, inspired by our traditional, spiritual, moral and national values. He said that it filled him with deep joy to see parents and children together attending the Liturgy, manifesting their deep faith. He concluded by asking parents to continue to raise their children with our traditional values through the Armenian Church, the schools and the family.
