The Eastern Diocese held its third “Sacred Music Festival” on Friday and Saturday, April 16-17. Conceived by the Diocese’s Sacred Music Council at the instigation of Diocesan Primate Bishop Daniel, the festival was a celebration of Armenian liturgical music, featuring educational presentations and recitals.
The Eastern Diocese, under the auspices of Diocesan Primate Bishop Daniel, has entered a new agreement with Fordham University, which will reconfigure the director’s position of the Diocese’s Zohrab Information Center into a post-doctoral fellowship.
The Eastern Diocese is pleased to announce that Diocesan Primate Bishop Daniel Findikyan will ordain Deacon Timothy Aznavourian to the Holy Order of Priesthood on Friday and Saturday, May 28-29, 2021.
Saturday, April 24, will be observed by the worldwide Armenian Church as the “Feast of the Holy Martyrs of the Armenian Genocide.” Services at St. Vartan Cathedral will begin at 10 a.m., wth all health restrictions observed.
Less than a week after the Armenian Church’s celebration of Easter, the Eastern Diocese marked another occasion of hope and promise, as it saw the ordination of a new pastor to lead the faithful.
