Lord Jesus, please keep watch over your faithful people and the holy soil of Arstakh and Armenia, now and always.
    Grant them strength and lead them through this time of trial to a victorious and just peace. Amen.

 
Please Pray for Our Clergy
Though most of Armenian communities around the world are concerned about the war and the civil unrest in Armenia, we ask that we also remember all our clergy in our prayers, especially Archbishop Barkev Mardirosian, Primate of Artsakh, who recently suffered a heart attack. Bishop Datev Hagopian, Primate of Romania and Bulgaria, who was poisoned by phosphorous used by the Azeris during the Artsakh war and is currently hospitalized.

Update...
Archbishop Barkev Mardirosian was recently transported to the United States where he underwent successful surgery for his heart and is currently recovering.

Commemoration of the Apostles St. Thaddeus and St. Bartholomew, the first preachers of Christianity in Armenia

Apostles St. Thaddeus and St. Bartholomew were two of the twelve Apostles of Christ, who came to Armenia and preached Christianity in Armenia deserving the title “the first illuminators”. Still at the dawn of Christianity they were martyred in Armenia. It was the result of their preaching and martyrdom that the Armenian people, being the first nation in the world, proclaimed Christianity as the state religion. Indeed, Apostles St. Thaddeus and St. Bartholomew played an important role in the history of 2000-year-old Christian Armenian nation which has unshaken faith and keen love towards its Mother Church.

Each year a Divine Liturgy is celebrated in the Cathedral of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin in the memory of St. Apostles.

Dear Parishioners and Friends, on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 is #Giving Tuesday. 
it's a time to show our Love and Support to Sourp Haroutiun Armenian Church. May God Continue bless You and Your Family members.
Fr. Paren Galstyan
