Thirty-one years ago this week, the Armenians of Baku were terrorized by mob violence, and victimized by an immoral political system.

In a year like no other, the birth of Jesus Christ reminds us that God’s comfort is a living, personal reality, says Bishop Daniel. Watch and read his Christmas message to the faithful of the Eastern Diocese, in English and Armenian.
Monday, December 7, will mark 32 years since the earthquake that rocked Armenia. December of 1988 was a time of heartache for all Armenians. But its aftermath brought our people together, opened a new path in our national history, and offered lessons that remain powerful, and meaningful, in our present day.
Join the worldwide #GivingTuesday movement today, Tuesday, December 1, by offering a gift to the Eastern Diocese. In this critical time, #GivingTuesday is a way to show thanks to the causes that bring meaning and enrichment to your life.
