On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, His Holiness Karekin II, the Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, confirmed the election of the Very Reverend Fr. Daniel Findikyan as the new Primate of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America.
The eagerly anticipated 50th anniversary celebration of St. Vartan Cathedral will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6, during a weekend of activities at the Diocesan Center (630 Second Avenue, at 34th Street) in New York City.
On that warm April morning in 1968, when the doors to a newly-built St. Vartan Cathedral swung open to welcome the procession of His Holiness Vasken I, Nazar Nazarian stood shoulder to shoulder with the proud witnesses.
The storied history of midtown Manhattan’s St. Vartan Cathedral will be told through photos and artifacts—some never displayed before—in a special exhibition to honor the 50th anniversary of St. Vartan Cathedral.
