Closing the Curtains on a Cultural Series

On Friday, June 17, the first-ever season of “Night at the Opera,” organized by the St. Thomas Cultural Committee, will come to a close with a showing of “The Bartered Bride,” a comic opera by Bedrich Smetana. The culturally enriching screenings of the world’s most famous operas, played by prominent international stars, could not have been possible without the much-appreciated efforts of Dr. Levon Capan. His dedication to this series, along with that of each of the members of the Cultural Committee, has been greatly appreciated. So come out to St. Thomas Armenian Church on June 17th to view this last opera of the series!

First Annual Kirikian Armenian School Mother’s Day Mimosa Brunch

The first annual Mother’s Day Mimosa Brunch, held at St. Thomas Armenian Church on Saturday, May 7, was a great success. Sponsored by the members of the staff and executive committee of the Kirikian Armenian School, the event was a magical day where friendship, motherhood, and family came together in a perfect way! Perhaps no one was as overjoyed as Ani Capan, as she later stated that the Kirikian Armenian School students “showed the audience what an important role our school plays in our community by instilling the Armenian children with national identity and traditions. This time it was Mother’s Day and they have learned a variety of poems written for mothers that they will not forget in their lives. I heard compliments from every corner of the room, and this success belongs to all of our teachers. I don’t know how better I can stress my thanks to you.”

Kirikian Armenian School – 2016 Earth Day Project to Help Families in Nagorno-Karabagh

At the Kirikian Armenian School, Earth Day is a special day for students to think about our cultural and national needs in general. The main purpose of the “Every Day is Earth Day” project is to teach our students the importance of “giving.” This year we will try to help ease the suffering for families of victims and those affected by the conflict in Nagorno-Karabagh. With our generous donations to the Children of Armenia Fund (COAF) we can help support those families who lost their father, son, brother or uncle in conflict. Please send your donations by May 31st.
