His Eminence, Archbishop Khajag Barsamian, the Primate of the Eastern Diocese, will visit Armenian Church of the Holy Ascension in Trumbull the weekend of September 16-17, 2017.
On Saturday evening, 9/16 6:00 p.m. His Eminence will preside at a special requiem service, for all whose memory the new sanctuary windows were donated. Following the requiem service there is a buffet-style dinner in the church hall and everyone will have the opportunity to hear the Archbishop and also ask Diocese/Church-related questions. There is no charge for the buffet. This is a great opportunity for you to meet with His Eminence!
On Sunday morning, Archbishop Khajag Barsamian will be the celebrant and the preacher: Fr. Karekin will also be on the altar with our Fr. Untzag!: Badarak begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. Try your best to be on time for the procession and share of the joy in the ordinations which will also take place near the beginning of badarak.
