The Eastern Diocese is deeply saddened by the untimely loss of Deacon David Ohanian, who passed away on June 21. He was 68 years old.
“Poor working girl perseveres through the adversities of life and love—but finally makes it big.”
It sounds like the outline of a Grimm’s Fairy Tale—or, given a more contemporary spin, a Danielle Steel novel.
In an ordinary year, by the end of June schools are winding down, summer is gearing up, and many parishioners settle into a more “relaxed” habit of church participation.
This year, of course, has been anything but ordinary.
The Eastern Diocese’s Facebook page is sharing live and recorded broadcasts of church services this Sunday, June 21. Our prayerful good wishes to you all on this Father’s Day.
This Sunday will be observed as Father’s Day across the United States: a chance to reflect, with gratitude, on the deeper meaning of fatherhood. While the surrounding popular culture may sometimes fail to treat fatherhood with due seriousness, the Armenian Church accords great reverence and respect to fathers.
