The Eastern Diocese is pleased to announce that a date has been set for the episcopal ordination of the Diocesan Primate, the Very Rev. Fr. Daniel Findikyan.
New York’s St. Vartan Cathedral will revive an old Armenian custom this year, when it inaugurates a monthly “Prayers for Healing” service.
In his Armenian Christmas sermon at St. Vartan Cathedral, Diocesan Primate Fr. Daniel Findikyan said that in Christ’s nativity, God brought the glory of heaven down to the earth—in the most unexpected way.
January 6, 2019, fell on the first Sunday of the New Year, and the Armenian Church of America welcomed the occasion with the new Primate of the Eastern Diocese celebrating the “Armenian Christmas” Divine Liturgy.
The Nativity and Baptism of Jesus Christ will be observed at New York’s St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral on Saturday and Sunday, January 5 and 6, 2019. A special liturgical schedule will be in effect for these “Armenian Christmas” services.
