On Wednesday, August 17th, His Holiness Vazken I, Supreme Patriarch-Catholicos of All Armenians entered his eternal rest at the age of 84.
Please pray for his soul and for the leadership (both lay and clergy) of the the Armenian Orthodox Church--that they will be guided by the Holy Spirit in their proceedings to name a successor to the Patriarchal Throne.
Entombment/Funeral Services for His Holiness will take place at the Cathedral of Holy Etchmiadzin in Armenia. Many of the bishops and hierarchy of other sister churches will also be present.
Lord have mercy!
