Every summer, pastors from the Eastern Diocese answer the call to visit Armenia, and to bring their parishioners as well as their personal ministry to the homeland.
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 July 16.
With deep regret, the Eastern Diocese mourns the untimely passing of Mr. Nazareth Salbashian, a longtime staff member at the Diocesan Center in New York, and manager of its St. Vartan Bookstore.
On behalf of our Primate Bishop Daniel Findikyan and the entire Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America, we wish all of you a happy Independence Day.
The Armenian Church was blessed with a new priest this weekend, as Diocesan Primate Bishop Daniel performed the sacrament of holy orders on the former Deacon Narek Garabedian.
