“HEAVENLY KING, PRESERVE YOUR CHURCH UNSHAKEN, AND WITH OUR WORSHIP KEEP IT IN PEACE.”
With Almighty God’s blessings, with the patronage of His Eminence Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, and the approval of the local Parish Council, I took the spiritual responsibility of the newly anointed Saint Garabed Apostolic Church of Las Vegas, as the parish pastor, on Nov 18th 2013.
Dear devoted congregation, you all worked hard for many years for the realization of your dream, to have your own house of worship founded on the Christian faith of the Armenian Church.
I believe also that the church is and will continue to be the spiritual awakening and aspiration to every single one of you.
Fellow believers, our church is the fortress of faith where you can find our forefathers’ souls, and the prayers and hymns of every Armenian, young and old, who will come for inspiration and spiritual growth.
I address, especially, our new young generation whose responsibility is to build the golden bridge between the old and the new, for generations to come.
Let your Christian service be a glorious crown for Armenian perpetuity.
May God bless you all and strengthen your faith.
May God, our Heavenly King, keep St. Garabed Armenian Apostolic church unshaken and immovable and may you all be at peace.
