An Evening of Love and Appreciation!

An Evening of Love and Appreciation!

On Saturday evening, October 22, Holy Martyrs celebrated the 10th Anniversary of Fr. Abraham’s ministry with an elegant banquet and celebratory program that will be remembered by all! The sold out event of 200, was a joyful gathering celebrating Fr. Abraham’s ministry and other recent milestone events in his life that were not celebrated due to Covid - his 2020 graduation from Fordham’s DMin Program and Ten Year Ordination anniversary. The church auditorium was decorated in blue, silver and white, and transformed into a beautiful banquet hall complete with banquet chairs and china! The evening of celebration highlighted the parish’s achievements over the last decade under Fr. Abraham's leadership with a wonderful photo and video montage which included congratulatory messages from all the parish’s schools and auxiliaries. Musical performances from violinist Diana Vasilyan and The Malkhasyan Trio (Fr Abraham’s children) brought the excited crowd to their feet in applause. A surprise video of congratulations from Fr. Abraham’s family in Armenia was also a touching moment in an evening full of much love and appreciation for Fr. Abraham, Yn. Karine, Evelina, Armen and Mariam. The parish gifted Fr. Abraham a new set of vestments made in Armenia and a beautiful Michael Aram sculpture was gifted to Yn. Karine. A draft "Booklet of Blessings" was also presented to Fr. Abraham, listing all donors and congratulatory messages received in his honor thus far. The Booklet will soon be finalized with the addition of the photos from this memorable evening. The celebratory banquet, catered entirely in-house by the Anniversary Committee, was an evening of delicious and abundant food, many smiles, wonderful memories and an outpouring of love for the Malkhasyan Family. No one wanted the night to end! Many even stayed until after 1pm at the "After Party" to dance and relax! A full recap of the event will be in the December Narrec. Click here for the photos.
