More than 60 young adults took part in the 2021 Virtual Armenia Service Program (ASP) organized by the ACYOA Central Council. The virtual “tour” of Armenia took the shape of 5 online gatherings, which met for an hour each evening during the week of June 13-18.
Every year, the Armenian Church reserves a day in its liturgical calendar to remember one of the more obscure figures of the Old Testament: the Prophet Zechariah. This year his saint day falls on June 29.
In a pastoral message to the faithful, Bishop Daniel urges all Armenians to lift their eyes from limited, momentary disputes, and unite in the preservation and rebuilding of our homeland.
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.
Recent summers, of course, have been anything but ordinary.
St. Nersess Armenian Seminary will celebrate its 60th anniversary this fall with a special banquet honoring the vocations of the first 12 students who graduated from St. Nersess and St. Vladimir’s seminaries and were ordained into the priesthood.
