The moderator of the function was student Ani Karapetyan, who at the end of the cultural programme invited Father Oshagan Gulgulian, the Director of the ACPA to address the audience.
Father Oshagan Gulgulian, the Director of the ACPA and deacon Tigran Baghumyan, Administrator of the ACPA, represented the Armenian Church during the ceremony.
The participants of the ceremony referred to Mother Tereza's work and activity, underlining her boundless love and devotion to the poor and vulnerable people.
They also mentioned that due to her humanitarian activity Mother Tereza was loved and adored by everyone as she was a gift by God.
Father Gulgulian said a prayer in her memory and spoke of her close relations with the Armenian Church and people.
Due to her sacred activity, Mother Tereza became God's envoy on earth and shared her love with the poor. "And now looking down at us from heaven she wants to see the same mission and love inside people," noted Father Gulgulian in his speech.

Father Oshagan Gulgulian
Father Oshagan Gulgulian, Pastor and Manager of the Armenian College (2005-2009), did not particularly appreciate Adamyan's writings and replied with a letter full of charges.
Gulgulian wrote that the whole city of Madras would be laughing to read that the old bridge which was built by an Armenian in 1725, is still serving the heavy traffic of the city, while according to him the bridge has been demolished fifty years ago and replaced with a modern one.
Gulgulian also commented on the way Adamyan has described her expectations regarding the facilities available in the Armenian College during her stay in India and characterized them as "arrogant way of expressing her own self importance in her newly appointed teaching position".
The last advice given by Gulgulian goes "I would strongly suggest to Ms. Adamyan that before she writes any more articles that she goes and checks archives and not rely solely on the internet".
In a response letter Hermine Adamyan has analyzed all the comments and insulting remarks made by father Gulgulian. See the response letter here.
On the other hand, Father Oshagan Gulgulian should have referred to the weak points in Hermineh Adamyan's writings without using any derogative or ridiculing remarks.
In his comment above, Rananjay Anand is very critical about Mrs. Adamyan's article and forgets to point out that Mrs Adamyan only responded to Fr. Gulgulian's cynical and unjust criticism.

Father Oshagan Gulgulian, a member of the Etchmiadzin Brotherhood, has been appointed as head of an interim school board to govern the activities of the College, whereas Deacon Tigran Baghumian remained in his position as Administrator.
As to what relates to the many lies that have been written about Father Oshagan Gulgulian and Father Ktrij Devejian, I can state with certainty that they are complete lies and in no way correspond to reality.
