On March 16, 2019 the faithful of St. James Armenian Apostolic Church of Sacramento and the parish priest Rev. Fr. Yeghishe Ksachikyan were delighted to welcome pilgrims from the Western Diocese led by Mr. Hayk Madoyan. The pilgrims, mostly participants of the Christian Study Courses; a Bible Study and apologetics class that meets weekly at St. Leon Armenian Cathedral, were visiting St. James to pray and to participate in an informative lecture titled "The Church as a form of Noah's Ark."
The topic which was presented by Mr. Madoyan, the Director of the Christian Study Courses drew keen interest from the faithful. The lecture was followed by an active question and answer session.
During the Sunday service, Fr. Yeghishe Ksachikyan expressed his gratitude to the pilgrims who brought joy and enthusiasm to the faithful of St. James.
