I've recently complained about how all the exciting things seem to be happening either on the East Coast of the US, or in the UK. Finally, it seems in September there is going to be some things happening in California.
I've known for a while that the new Armenian cathedral in Burbank is going to be consecrated by HH Karekin II on September 11.
Last week, moreover, I was at St. Antony Monastery, where they are building a beautiful church dedicated to St. Moses. It's not finished yet, but I saw it and it is absolutely gorgeous and huge, and it is hard to imagine such a place existing right in the middle of the Mojave desert. There isn't even a paved road leading to the monastery.
They said it was going to be dedicated by HH Pope Shenouda in September. I didn't get the date, though. Does anyone know the date?
I just think it is great that the two patriarchs will be here in September. I wonder if there will be any overlap in the dates of their visits, and if they will get to meet. Does anyone know? I wonder if they even know about each other's visits.
It would be cool if they could get together.
