MESSAGE FROM ARCHPRIEST GARABED KOCHAKIAN
Pastor of St. John Armenian Orthodox Church
Dear Father Roman [our Bob],
What a wonderful opportunity and occasion to offer our prayers for your commendable service to Christ's Holy Church as you celebrate your 30th anniversary to the Sacred Priesthood. No doubt over the years the flock that you have fed spiritually and shepherded has been touched through you by God's grace. You have opened the window to heaven at each Divine Liturgy for them, letting them taste of the fountain of immortality and seeing a glimpse of eternal life. Blessed are you for all your good works and deeds in your sacred calling.
Roberta and I offer our prayers, as well as the entire Parish of St. John Armenian Orthodox Church on the auspicious celebration, and we beseech Christ our Savior to continue to guide you by His Holy Spirit in the days and years ahead of you.
Truly you have been a worthy servant in the Lord's vineyard and we lift you up in prayer and rejoice with you on this special day.
Father Garabed Kochakian [Danny]
