A special celebration will take place in the Eastern Diocese this weekend, as a new Armenian Church will be consecrated for the faithful community of St. Sarkis Church of Carrollton, TX.
Sunday, April 24, will be observed by the worldwide Armenian Church as the “Feast of the Holy Martyrs of the Armenian Genocide.” Services at St. Vartan Cathedral will begin at 10 a.m., with local health measures observed.
“HE IS RISEN!” These three words—so infinitely powerful and fundamental to our Armenian Christian faith since its birth during the Apostolic age—declare Christ’s victory over death, and assure our salvation through His crucifixion and Resurrection.
It was a memorial tribute to an Armenian individual who embodied the best in education, scholarship, compassion and philanthropy.
In a splendid Easter liturgy on Sunday, April 17, His Holiness Karekin II told how Christ’s resurrection gives hope to a world troubled by war, division, and instability.
