The Eastern Diocese’s Armenian Studies department held its much-anticipated Armenian Teachers Symposium on Saturday, September 11, as a “hybrid” event combining in-person and remote participation.
With the deepest regret, the Eastern Diocese mourns the loss of Yeretzgin Diane Vidian Chevian: beloved wife of Fr. Mardiros Chevian, who passed away on September 11. She was 67.
In the shadow of that infamous date, September 11, we offer a meditation on the reality of suffering, and the power of the Cross in Armenian Christian spirituality.
Hard though it is to believe, an entire generation has elapsed since that infamous day of 20 years ago: September 11, 2001. We offer prayers to God for His mercy, protection, and remembrance, as across our nation, people solemnly commemorate the anniversary.
It was the great religious “confab” of the 4th century: a gathering of Christian bishops from throughout the world, convened by no less an authority than the Roman Emperor Constantine I.
