Pastor's Message        
The Circumcision of Christ
"For it was Christ's wish that all the requirements of the law be met by Him, and He was circumcised on the eighth day (Luke 2:21). The church Calendar indicated the eighth day of Theophany as the Feast of Circumcision. However, no commemoration of it is to be found in the chants and hymns. All our calendars unanimously use the designated "Feast of the Naming of Christ." The time of the Feast is January 13, regardless of the day, and is a required Feast.

Dear Parishioners,

In spite of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we would like to continue celebrating "St. Garabed Church Name Day" on Sunday, January 17, 2021, in a slightly different way than previous years. 

Unfortunately, we will not be able to host festivities (getting together with Armenian music and dances) at our Cultural Center because of strict restrictions mandated for the safety of the public.
Still, St. Garabed Church Ladies Auxiliary will be preparing our famous Harissa dish on Sunday, and Archpriest Fr. Vahan Gosdanian will bless the Madagh/Harissa at the end of Church Service, which will then be distributed to the parishioners.
This year the Harissa is being sponsored by Mr. & Mrs. Garo & Maria Bayramian.
During these difficult days, St. Garabed Church has kept its doors open for our spiritual needs. We thank Archpriest Fr. Vahan Gosdanian and Archpriest Fr. Avedis Torossian for continuously performing Church Services every Sunday.
