It was altogether appropriate that, a few days after Thanksgiving, New York’s St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral should ring with “spiritual gratitude” for the monumental “Armenia!” exhibit at the world famous Metropolitan Museum of Art.
With the deepest sorrow, the Eastern Diocese mourns the loss of the Reverend Fr. Diran Avak Kahana Papazian, who passed away on November 21, 2018.
In collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its “Armenia!” exhibit, St. Vartan Cathedral will hold a special liturgical program on the evening of Tuesday, November 27, at 7:30 p.m.
To mark Thanksgiving, Diocesan Primate Fr. Daniel Findikyan issued the greeting below to the faithful of the Eastern Diocese:
“Thousands of Christians and people of other religions in the Middle East face persecution daily,” said four American religious leaders in a letter to U.S. President Donald J. Trump, on November 16, 2018.
