On the weekend of June 4-5, 2021, the Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection in New Britain, CT, and the entire Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America, witnessed the holy sacrament of ordination, culminating in the consecration of a new priest to lead the faithful.
The Eastern Diocese is pleased to release its 2020 Annual Report to Donors, titled “Lifted Up by the Cross.”
The Eastern Diocese is pleased to announce that scholar Jesse Arlen has been named as the first “Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Armenian Christian Studies, and Director at the Krikor and Clara Zohrab Information Center.”
A special celebration will take place in the Eastern Diocese this weekend, as Dn. Michael Sabounjian is ordained as a priest of the Armenian Church, by the hand of Bishop Daniel.
The ordination of a new priest of the Armenian Church was a memorable “first” for the Diocesan parish in Springfield, MA.
