The 120th Diocesan Assembly of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America saw some significant transitions in the life of the Diocese.
His Holiness Karekin II marked Armenia’s annual “Victory Day” on May 9, 2022, with a message reflecting on the painful realities of war and loss experienced by Armenians in the past two years.
Fr. Mesrop Parsamyan expressed humble gratitude, appreciation for his predecessors, and optimism for the road ahead in his first message to the people, following his election as the 13th Primate of the Eastern Diocese.
The 120th Diocesan Assembly will convene this week (May 6-7) in a “hybrid” format, incorporating both in-person and online participation.
His Holiness Karekin II began this year’s solemn April 24 commemoration by visiting the Armenian Genocide Memorial at Dzidzernagapert, to lay wreaths and offer prayers at the eternal flame.
