OO's Easters
« on: April 13, 2006, 03:02:06 AM »
I understand that the Indian Orthodox in America, both the Syrian and Independant factions, celebrate Easter at the same time the Catholics do.  What about Armenians?

And should it be a requirement, a necessity that all OO's celebrate Easter the same date?

God bless.

All Orthodox Indians (and I purposed put the words in that order to include everyone) celebrate Easter according to the Western calculation since the early 1950's.  The Armenians also celebrate on the same date.  

I think it is preferable for all of us to celebrate on one date, but how would we go about making that happen?  If we can figure out how to do that, maybe we can get other stuff done...

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

True...if only we can actually get things done ::)

Has the Armenian Church changed this recently, or centuries back?

God bless.

It was sometime after the Genocide, when the surviving Armenians went into diaspora, that the Armenians in the U.S. started celebrating Easter on the Western date.  I know in Jerusalem they still celebrate on the old date.  I don't know about the Armenians in the rest of the world.

A blessed Good Friday to all Orthodox Indians and our Armenian Orthodox brothers and sisters.

Lord have mercy.
