The Rt. Rev. Dr. Vahan Hovanessian was ordained bishop of the Armenian Apostolic Church on Nov. 6, 2011. Two weeks later, he served his first Badarak as bishop, at a church in London, England.  angel

From the article:
The Very Rev Fr Vahan Hovhanessian, who was elected Primate of the Armenian Church on 14 December 2009, has now become The Rt Rev Dr Vahan Hovhanessian, Bishop of the Armenian Church, following his Episcopal ordination by HH Catholicos Karekin II at Holy Etchmiadzin in Armenia on 6 November 2011.

Since then, and on Sunday, 20 November 2011, the newly-ordained bishop also celebrated his first Badarak or Holy Divine Liturgy at St Yeghishé Armenian Church in London.
