The Annual Volunteers’ Appreciation Party took place on Saturday, January 8, 2011 at “Magaros Artinian” Hall of Holy Trinity Armenian Church. The party was organized and hosted by the Parish Council’s chairman, Mr. John Satouri and his wonderful co-workers: Stephan Ekmekjian, Rosin Imasdounian, Levon Kaltakjian, Hrant Ketenjian, Megardich Megardichian, Sibil Kurkjian, France Kandaharian, Grigor Shahmuradyan, Kevork Barounian & Rostom Mirzoyan.
These amazing ladies and gentlemen and their families went out of their ways to make sure all volunteers had a great time and felt welcomed.
Mrs. Sella Kaltakjian was the M.C. for the evening who did a great job throughout the party.
This year’s party was extra special because of our Primate’s presence. His Eminence Bishop B. Galstanian greeted the guests and wished them to continue being faithful and active members of Holy Trinity Armenian Church.
The Parish Priest, Rev. Archpriest Zareh Zargarian, Mr. John Satouri and Mr. Ara Boyajian, the chairman of Diocesan Council each delivered a warm and welcoming speech and wished the guests a prosperous year ahead.
The gathering brings our committee members close and helps them to get to know each other better and find new friends. Over 35 auxiliary bodies are working actively towards the betterment of this church’s mission. They take part in schools, events and activities that play a major role in flourishing the religious knowledge and helping individuals to have stronger faith as well as preserving and promoting the Armenian heritage and culture. One of the most important missions of Holy Trinity Armenian Church is reaching out and assisting those in need throughout various outreach programs. Our doors are always open and we welcome you to join over 350 existing volunteers.
We appreciate our dedicated parish pastor, Fr. Zargarian’s tireless efforts and his skilled leadership that continues to guide Holy Trinity Armenian Church towards achieving higher goals and conquering challenges. We pray that 2011 will bring health, peace and harmony for all.
