On Thursday, February 28, the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America commemorated the Feast of Vartanantz with a Divine Liturgy service and dinner program held at St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral in New York.
As arrangements go forward for the episcopal ordination of the Diocesan Primate, the Very Rev. Fr. Daniel Findikyan, the Eastern Diocese is announcing a “pilgrimage” to Armenia for those who wish to witness the consecration in person.
On the evening of February 13, 2019, worshippers gathered at New York’s St. Vartan Cathedral for a unique service offering prayers in anticipation of the Feast of the Lord’s Presentation to the Temple.
The Vicar of St. Vartan Cathedral, Fr. Mesrop Parsamyan, delivered a talk at the St. Ignatius Loyola Roman Catholic Church in New York City, on January 26.
He addressed the church’s Lay Ministers Enrichment Team, offering insights into St. Gregory of Narek’s powerful Book of Prayers as an example of the Armenian Christian tradition of prayer.
An ancient Armenian custom was revived in New York City last week, when St. Vartan Cathedral held its inaugural “Prayers for Healing” service.
