A series of religious education events were held at Mesrobian High School as the Christmas holidays approached. The events were organized by the Office of Religious Affairs, in partnership with the parish of the Saint-Savior Church and with the Student Spiritual Club.

These included confession days organized for all students. During the preparatory meetings, Reverend Father Raffi Hovhannessian, the supervisor in charge of Religious Affairs, explained to the students the meaning of confession and penance, with emphasis on the importance in a person's life, of indulgence and of solidarity in friendship.

On December 11, all Mesrobian students and many of their parents participated in a symbolic ceremony during which the baby Jesus was placed in the Manger. The ceremony was presided over by Reverend Father Raffi Hovhannessian, accompanied by fathers Ghazar Bedrossian and Khachig Kouyoumdjian, respectively vice vicar and assistant vicar of the Saint-Savior church. During the ceremony, the baby Jesus was transported from the monument of Saint Mesrob erected in the playground of the school, to the manger under the Christmas tree, which also stood there. The students sang spiritual songs, while others acted as deacons, inscribing these moments with deep religious feelings.

On this occasion, the "Dzidzernag" choir of Mesrobian also presented a series of Christmas carols. Students and teachers gave speeches that brought out the meaning of the Nativity scene in the life of an individual and for all of humanity. Reverend Father Raffi once again spoke of God who became man and emphasized the commandments that flow from God's love for humanity. The principal of the school Mr. Gregoire Kalouste expressed his deep satisfaction for the day marked by the religious spirit, and thanked all the organizers.
