In honor of the 30th anniversary of the independence of Artsakh today (September 2, 2021), His Holiness Karekin II, the Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, issued the following message:
In an urgent message, Diocesan Primate Bishop Daniel asks faithful across the Eastern Diocese to pray for Christ’s healing and hope to descend upon a world in crisis.
On behalf of our Primate Bishop Daniel Findikyan and the entire Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America, we extend to you our warm good wishes on Independence Day.
In a pastoral message to the faithful, Bishop Daniel urges all Armenians to lift their eyes from limited, momentary disputes, and unite in the preservation and rebuilding of our homeland.
This week’s Feast of St. Daniel and His Companions (June 22) is a lesson in fidelity to God over submission to worldly forces.
