Event Details

 

 

Each year the Armenian Church celebrates the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord to the Temple on February 14, 40 days after the Feast of the Nativity (January 6).  According to Biblical tradition, it was a custom in the Armenian Church for parents to bring their newly-born babies to the Temple of the Lord to present the child to God.

In observance of this Biblical tradition, this year's Blessing of the Babies' Service will take place on Sunday, May 19.  All parents who baptized a child at Holy Trinity Church in 2018 have been invited to present their son or daughter to the Altar of the Lord for a special blessing at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy.
