Nearly 100 parishioners gathered in the Shahnasarian Hall for St. Hagop Armenian Church’s first Advent Candlelight dinner. The faithful shared a dish and light conversation, after which four speakers gave intimate testimonies of the workings of faith, hope, love and joy in their lives. The evening culminated in the lighting of advent candles while all sang “Silent Night” in English & Armenian. Thanks to Yn. Anna, Natella, Madlena, Jean, Teresa & Linda for organizing and our spirit-fillled speakers John, Alysia, Rick & Eileen & Chris Sassouni.
