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.
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.
When the pandemic caused the cancellation of in-person programs, Diocesan parishes became creative in continuing the church’s mission. Here’s how one parish approached the crisis.
Two parishioners of St. Kevork Church of Houston, TX, were honored this month with pontifical medals from His Holiness Karekin II, the Catholicos of All Armenians.
