Father Hovsep explained that the students of Levonian School will be spending one month of their summer vacation with their families and another month working for their parishes to gain some experience. He added that he will use this opportunity to meet with the families of the students to get acquainted with them and the atmosphere that surrounds them. Father Hovsep was accompanied by the vice rector father Tovmas Garabedian.
In his wide educational experience, father Kelegian emphasizes the importance of social communication regarding them as essential and the means that the young priests should use with much flexibility in service of their own mission, which, father Hovsep insists should preserve its contemporary character in order to be productive and fertile.
Referring to the process of character formation among the new generation, father Hovsep mentioned the peculiarities and difficulties of this essential phase, by setting a priority to teach the youth about how they should benefit from the positive value of the human experience. Father Kelegian told that every young person while growing up should recognize his advantages and value them, just as he should recognize and accept his faults and defects.
At the end of the meeting, father Hovsep expressed wishes of success and progress for the website.
