This past Sunday, March 17, St. John Armenian Church was filled with the spirit of renewal and introspection as we gathered for the "Embracing Grace: The Transformative Power of Confession" event, which was associated with St. John's Year of Healing initiative. Ms. Anahid Telfeyan's well-prepared and insightful presentation illuminated the path toward healing and reconciliation through confession. Anahid’s dedication to our spiritual nourishment was further demonstrated through the special booklets she prepared. These guides to confession, aimed at aiding the faithful in their preparation for this sacred sacrament, were distributed to attendees, serving as a valuable resource for personal reflection.

The event also featured an enriching Q&A session with Father Mesrop, offering further guidance and answering the congregation’s inquiries. This interactive segment deepened our understanding and appreciation of the sacrament of confession, reinforcing its importance in our spiritual lives.

For those feeling called to partake in the opportunity of private confession, we are pleased to provide a direct link for scheduling individual sessions with our Parish Priest: Additionally, private confessions will be heard in the Sanctuary on Holy Saturday, from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM, offering another opportunity for personal reflection and reconciliation.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Anahid Telfeyan for her profound contributions and to all who participated, making this event a deeply moving and meaningful experience. As we continue on our journey of faith, let us carry forward the grace and wisdom imparted through this special gathering, embracing the healing and transformative power of confession in our lives.
