Beast on the Moon follows the story of Aram and Seta Tomasian, recent immigrants and survivors of the Armenian Genocide. Though it takes place over a span of thirteen years from 1921 to 1933, after the unspeakable murder of 1.5 million Armenian people, it speaks to so many of the issues that affect us as a nation and a global community today. 
Though the tragic Armenian genocide is the backdrop, it is the personal story of how Aram and Seta negotiate their new lives together in America. 

Some facts and reviews of Beast on the Moon-
  • Beast on the Moon has been produced in 17 countries and 12 languages.
  • An epic event- A story that needs to be told-
  • Consciousness-raising...Love will ultimately prevail- The New York Times
  • A captivating tale about the ways humans cope. The story unfolds with ever-increasing tension, leading to a thoroughly satisfying conclusion -

Our Next Outreach Is


Monday March 30th 2015


Future Dates:
June 22nd 2015 


In the spirit of Christian stewardship, part of our parish outreach effort is to donate food to the Mary House food pantry and to volunteer at St. Patrick's meal kitchen. 

TBD is our parish's next date to volunteer.  We meet at St. Patrick's on Smith Street by 3:45 PM.  The last meal is served by 5:15 PM when we help with clean-up. Call the Church office, Joyce Avedisian (724-3978), or Bertha Mugurdichian (351-9276) if you have any questions.




Four o'clock in the afternoon is part of the workday for most of us, but there is another way to help. Every time you come to church - for Badarak, church school, a meeting, an event - make a donation of one nonperishable food and/or personal hygiene item. We deliver an average of 100 cans every 10 - 12 weeks.  If we could collect just one can from every man, woman, and child each time we step through the doors of the church it would mean a donation of 400+ items each month. The food pantry supports the unemployed and working poor by offering them a place to get a bag of groceries one or two times a month. Sts. Sahag & Mesrob Church is one of several groups who contribute to this effort.




Thanks to those parishioners who have participated in the past.
