Soorp Haroutiun Armenian Church of Orlando, FL, held a ‘Back-to-School’ celebration on Sunday, August 5, where parish youth from pre-K through college received a special blessing from the visiting pastor, Rev. Fr. Mampre Kouzouian.
Following the Divine Liturgy parish families gathered for a cookout, where students were able to pick out school supplies for the coming year, and were entered into a raffle to win a backpack and other prizes.
“We hold this event to remind our students that God loves them—and so does their church family,” explained parishioner Aram Nazarian. “We hope an event like this can be an inspiration to our sister parishes, too.”
