Feast of the Transfiguration

St. Sarkis Church community enjoyed its Vartavar celebration, reviving a centuries-old pre-Christian custom combined with the Feast of the Transfiguration of Christ. After the Divine Liturgy, parishioners of all ages participated in the tradition of splashing, throwing, and playing with water. Lead by Rev. Fr. Hrant Kevorkian, children, parents, deacons, choir members, Sunday School teachers, and board members joined in the fun of squirting, throwing water balloons, dumping, and splashing water on each other. The front lawn of St. Sarkis Church was a joyous scene of running, jumping, chasing, sneaking, and surprising each other with water. Squeals of delight and shrieks of laughter filled the air as children and adults alike were soaked, a little muddy, and having a wonderful time. Everyone is already looking forward to next years Vartavar.
