On Thursday, May 10, the Armenian Church celebrated the Feast of the Ascension—the day marking the ascent of our Lord Jesus Christ to heaven, on the 40th day after his resurrection.
At the Diocesan parish named for the Holy Ascension, in Trumbull, CT, a dozen clergymen gathered included our pastor, Father Abraham, for a special Badarak, celebrated by Fr. Mesrob Hovsepyan of the White Plains parish. Holy Ascension pastor Fr. Untzag Nalbandian hosted the gathering.
Presiding over the occasion was newly-elected Primate Fr. Daniel Findikyan. He expressed his happiness to be among his brother clergy on such a holy occasion, as one of his first acts as Diocesan Primate.
