16th of November, 2017 shall remain a memorable day for the 8th graders at Mesrobian College, as well as for their parents: on that day, the students renewed their baptismal promises that they had made in their childhood, to become pious Christians, as taught by their godfathers years ago.

The Baptismal Renewal Ceremony was held during Holy Mass by the Spiritual Councilor of Mesrobian, Father Raffi Hovhannesian, at St. Savior Church. Present at the event were the principal of Mesrobian Gregoire Kaloust, teachers, parents, godfathers, and relatives of the students.

In his sermon, Reverend Father Raffi noted that young people renewing their baptismal promises are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, according to the definition of Christ himself, and are therefore destined for a life worthy of a Christian, whose goal is to spread the light of the Lord in the world through his faith and good deeds. He urged the students' parents to lead by example in the path of truth and to spare no effort to keep their children on the right path.

The students in their turn prayed individually and collectively.

Finally, they "ratified" by signatures their promises to become dedicated Christians.
