Aramana Visit

The MGOCSM of the BQLI area visited the Aramana this past Friday, November 4th. The evening began with Vespers followed by a discussion with our Diocesan Metropolitan, H.G. Zachariah Mar Nicholovos. The youth were able to ask Thirumeni many questions that they had regarding various topics relating to the Orthodox Church. Thirumeni and Abey Achen also spoke about their recent visit to Mount Athos, Greece and information regarding the Retreat Center project of the Diocese. Followed by the discussion, Achen provided a tour of the Aramana including a chance to see the Holy Vestments of H.G. Mathews Mar Barnabas of Blessed Memory. They also explained the many Icons in the chapel that represent the patron saints of parishes in the Diocese. Many youth from the area attended including eight from our Parish. The MGOCSM of St. Thomas Orthodox Church, LI would like to thank Thirumeni and the entire Aramana community for welcoming us and preparing the evening for the visit.
