On Saturday, May 20, the seminary will hold its annual graduation ceremony for its 2023 graduate, Dn. Serop Krajekian, who has successfully completed his program of studies at St. Nersess Seminary. The Very Rev. Fr. Mesrop Parsamyan, Primate of the Eastern Diocese and the President of the St. Nersess Board of Directors, will officiate.
Dn. Serop currently lives in Charlotte, NC, with his wife and two children and is an electrical engineer by profession. He has been serving as a deacon at St. Sarkis Armenian Church in Charlotte since 2015.
“I was very grateful to be able to join the St. Nersess family in 2021 as a student, with the strong encouragement and support from many parishioners at St. Sarkis Church. Becoming a seminarian was another turning point in my life that has allowed me to grow in faith and develop a more profound knowledge of the Armenian Apostolic Church,” shares Dn. Serop. “While a seminarian, I have witnessed the dedication of the faculty, staff, and board members, people who spare no effort in teaching well-prepared seminarians who seek service in our Diocese.”
Dn. Serop looks forward to whatever plans lies ahead for him and his family. “I pray that God enables me to use all I have learned and experienced to be in service to Him, always to glorify Him, and to serve our Church and our people for the rest of my life,” exclaimed Dn. Serop.
In the afternoon, members of the St. Nersess Board of Directors will gather in the library for the end of the fiscal and academic year meeting. The public is welcome to attend the ceremony starting at 4:00 pm in the chapel. To RSVP, please click here.
