On April 20, 2018 the Greater Boston Armenian community commemorated the 103rd anniversary of the 1915-1923 Genocide in the Chamber of the Massachusetts State House of Representatives.  This local event began in the 1980’s and has been supported by the Knights of Vartan Ararat Lodge #1 every year since its inception by taking an active role on the committee and especially providing financial and logistics support for free round-trip buses for the local community including school children.

Avak Sbarabed’s message on Boston Marathon explosion

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As you are all aware of by now, almost exactly 24 hours ago a cowardly act took place at the finish line of the annual Boston Marathon. The twin bombings took three innocent lives, wounded dozens of others and transformed countless lives. The all too familiar scene was horrific and troubling. We pray for the victims and their families and hope for a speedy and just conclusion to this latest attempt to disrupt the American way of life.

I want to inform you that all Armenian-Americans in the area are safe and unharmed. As you know, metro Boston is home to one of the largest concentrations of Armenians in our country. In addition to your Boston based Avak Tivan, numerous others work and live in the immediate area, and, of course , Armenian Churches, institutions and families call the region their home. With the grace of our Lord, we continue to thank Him for our many Blessings.

As we approach the most solemn week of the year for all Armenians, let us join in prayer for the safety, peace and well-being of all humankind.

Fraternally,

Avak Sbarabed
