Seminary Benefactor Participates in Ribbon Cutting
Following the Board Meeting on November 13, Dean Shahinian, former St. Nersess Board member and longtime seminary supporter, enjoyed a ribbon cutting and blessing of the Recreation Complex, which he donated earlier this year. Bishop Daniel Findikyan, Fr. Mardiros Chevian, dean, members of the board, seminarians and guests were present to celebrate. The donation was made in honor of his parents, Paul and Grace (Jelalian) Shahinian.
In addition to the naming of the building, Dean donated towards the upgrade of the recreation complex, which includes new flooring, furniture, electronics, large screen TV, theatre-style seating, and refreshing the wall color, as well as new items outdoors, including soccer, volleyball and basketball nets. All was enjoyed by summer conference attendees this past summer. We are grateful to Dean and his continued support of the seminary.
