We will be livestreaming the Khavaroom Service to our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/stthomasarmenianchurchnj at 8:00 pm EST, on Great Thursday, APril 9.
We, at St. Thomas, have decided not to endanger the lives and families of our deacon(s), organist, and choir member(s), based upon medical data and guidance of national medical and academic experts. Thus, we are canceling the live video streaming of Palm Sunday and service for the Great Week.
St. Thomas has been working diligently to set up the livestreaming technology. Details will follow soon.
Please email Mrs. Ani Capan at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in having your child participate in the Washing of the Feet – Vodunluva evening service.
Please find the St. Thomas schedule of Holy Week (Avak Shapat) Services, April 9 – 16, 2017, in Armenian and in English.
The traditional Holy Week service of Vodnluva (Washing of the Feet) will take place on Holy Thursday, April 13, 2017. Please contact St. Thomas as soon as possible by email or phone if you would like your son(s) to participate.
This past Thursday, March 24, 2016, marked the day on which Christians remember Holy, or Maundy, Thursday (Avak Heenkshaptee). St. Thomas Church was filled with parishioners who were family members of those participating in the Vodnluva (Washing of the Feet) service, and also those who wanted to participate in the solemn Khavaroom (Vigil of the Garden) service. The Vodnluva took place first, with almost 20 children participating in this act of humility with our Pastor, Fr. Papken.
