at the Armenian Memorial Church, 32 Bigelow Ave., Watertown. Held at
11 a.m., the ecumenical service will include an address in Armenian
by Nevart Khederian and one in English by the Rev. Dr. Shoushan

Silva Khoshafian of the First Armenian Church of Belmont,

of Prayer throughout the world. Serving with her on the committee are
women from seven Armenian churches of all the Armenian faiths. The
Protestant churches are represented by Doris Markarian, Angel

by the women of Poland and will be repeated in churches all over the
world. Following the service, there will be a lenten luncheon served
in the Arpen Abrahamian Hall of the church. Reservations for the
luncheon, which will cost $5 per person, may be made by calling Silva
