On Sunday, March 8, 2015, the Educational Committee of the Armenian
Apostolic Church of Crescenta Valley will host a lecture on the
`Jesus’ Teaching on Fasting in the Gospel of Matthew’, presented by
Rev. Fr. Boghos Tinkjian. The lecture will begin at 1:00 p.m., at the
conclusion of Divine Liturgy, at the Prelacy `Dikran and Zarouhie Der
Ghazarian’ Hall (6250 Honolulu Ave, La Crescenta, CA 91214).
During His ministry on earth, Jesus taught us many things through His
lifestyle. The first lesson we should look at is the fasting, which He
performed before beginning His ministry.
In Matthew’s Gospel’s 6th chapter, Jesus teaches us how to live and
act on earth, in order to be worthy of heavenly rewards and how to
perform gracefully, only in ways that God can see and appreciate in
His Kingdom to come.
Jesus talks about the foundations of the Christian life, the ideal
acts that a Christian should build his life on, and the heavenly
necessities we all should worry about, instead of the earthly goods
that are perishable.
Fr. Boghos Tinkjian was born in Aleppo, Syria, where he received his
primary education. From 2003-2011 he attended the Seminary of the
Catholicosate of Cilicia. Upon completion of his studies he was
ordained a celibate priest by Seminary Dean H.E. Archbishop Nareg
Alemezian in 2011. Fr. Boghos has taught liturgical music and
Christian ethics within the Seminary, was the assistant librarian at
the Catholicosate Library, and during his last academic year was a
member of the administration at the Seminary.
In 2013, he arrived in Los Angeles where, by the ordinance of H.H.
Catholicos Aram I, he began studies at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena.
We invite our parishioners and the greater community to attend Divine
Liturgy and the presentation to follow. The event is free of charge to
the public. Those who would like to receive more information on or
