Worshippers visiting New York’s St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral on the evening of September 16 will have a rare opportunity to glimpse an actual relic of the True Cross of Jesus Christ.
The August 17 visit to the Eastern Diocese of Archbishop Avak Assadourian, Primate of Iraq, was an occasion of joyful reunion for senior alumni of St. Nersess Seminary.
As summer drew to a close, the Eastern Diocese sent a gift of more than $18,500 to charities helping vulnerable children in America and Armenia.
New York’s St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral will hold a special service on the evening of Sunday, September 16, to honor the major feast day known as Khatchveratz, or the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
The hotly anticipated “Armenia!” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is set to open on September 21, 2018, and run through January 13, 2019.
