The assembled clergy of the Eastern Diocese received an audience with His Holiness Karekin II, the Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, on Monday, February 15: the first day of Great Lent.
As the worldwide Armenian Church enters Great Lent, His Holiness Karekin II has issued a call to devote this season of spiritual life to self-examination and repentance.
With angelic strains of liturgical hymns and the recitation of centuries-old prayers echoing throughout its sanctuary, St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral in New York City held its annual observance of the Feast of Sts. Vartanantz on the evening of February 11, 2021.
Great Lent is a season to rediscover God through prayer, says Bishop Daniel in a new video message.
Bishop Daniel will preside over a special outdoor celebration on the evening of Saturday, February 13: the eve of the Feast of the Lord’s Presentation to the Temple (Dyarnuntarach).
