Some 60 participants representing 10 Diocesan Armenian Schools attended a daylong symposium at the Diocesan Center on September 9, 2017.
It was the great religious “confab” of the 4th century: a gathering of Christian bishops from throughout the world, convened by no less an authority than the Roman Emperor Constantine I. In A.D. 325, a town in the Black-Sea province of Bithynia played host to 318 scholars of the church who met to deliberate on the burning theological questions of the day.
The Armenian Church calendar occasionally gives us an unlikely pairing of saints on a single feast day: an “odd couple” who don’t quite fit together. That’s the case with the day dedicated to St. John the Forerunner and Job the Righteous—observed today, August 31.
This year the Armenian Church liturgical calendar designates August 24 as the feast of St. Jeremiah: one of the major prophets of the Bible.
Sunday School Superintendents from parishes across the Eastern Diocese gathered for the second National Sunday School Superintendents Summit held this past weekend at St. Nersess Seminary in Armonk, NY.
