Recently two new Armenian churches were consecrated in the Western Diocese:

Holy Resurrection Church in Seattle:

Here is the Archbishop consecrating the altar in Rancho Mirage:

It seems in Seattle, there were clergy from sister Orthodox Churches present for the consecration of Holy Resurrection:




It also snowed in Seattle!  Wow!


Well that's all the excitement for the Armenians in the Western US.   Smiley

Congratulations.  Those look like beautiful churches - something that is not always guaranteed since so many churches are forced to buy preexisting buildings (that are not always the most churchy).  The Armenian vestments with the red are also quite nice.  Is red often a choice of Armenian clergy, or is it standard for a consecration (I noticed that clergy in both photos were wearing red).

I used to walk by that street for years on my way to school  Grin its a beautiful church, the Armenians have been in Ethiopia for more than a century, they have served Ethiopia as Ethiopians on various levels, and are one of the most hard working, devout orthodox , loving and humble people I have met.

look at this one, the man talks about how the 40 Armenian Children adopted by the emperor  heroically refused to play the Turkish national anthem to the deligates of Turkey that came during the anniversary of the coronation of the Emperor. It is such a delightful story to hear, the heroics of this young men and their unbending principle.

great is the Providence of God, that there are many Ethiopian Armenians today in Ethiopia who raise Ethiopian poor children and Orphans either by adopting them or by the direct help of their family and their children.Look at this one example here ..

Criticism of Armenian vestments, icons and altars, and a response, were split off and put here:
