To Armenians in the U.S., “Armenian Cultural Month” has been a feature of community life for as long as they can remember. It arrives each October—with a flurry of lectures, readings, exhibits, sacred celebrations, and events intended to remind Armenians of their rich cultural heritage.
Diocesan Primate Bishop Daniel Findikyan delivered the annual Fr. John Meyendorff Memorial Lecture to celebrate 50 years of collaboration between St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary and St. Nersess Armenian Seminary.
Young Armenian Church members ages 13 to 18 came together over Columbus Day weekend for the annual ACYOA Juniors Fall Sports Weekend.
A three-day celebration of Armenian Church music brought clergy, deacons, choir singers, instrumentalists, and lovers of liturgical music to the St. James of Nisibis Church in Evanston, IL, over the weekend of October 4-6.
On October 8, Eastern and Oriental Orthodox leaders met at New York’s St. Vartan Cathedral for a meeting of the joint commission of both “families” of churches. It was the first such meeting in nearly a decade.
