Two upcoming gatherings will give Armenians and fellow Oriental Orthodox Christians a precious opportunity to celebrate their ancient spiritual heritage together.
The Republic of Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was the honored guest at a Town Hall meeting on the evening of Tuesday, September 24, at the Diocesan Center in New York.
Next weekend, the St. James Church in Evanston, IL, will be the site for the Eastern Diocese’s “Sacred Music Festival”—a gathering of choir singers, directors, instrumentalists, and lovers of Armenian sacred music from throughout the Diocese.
In the Armenian liturgical calendar, autumn is the Season of the Holy Cross. The months of September and October are punctuated with celebrations and fasts dedicated to the Cross of Jesus Christ, and its mysterious power.
