Recent Graduate To Be Ordained
St. Nersess is proud to announce that Dn. Albert Hambardzumyan, a 2019 graduate, will be ordained to the Holy Order of Priesthood by His Grace Bishop Daniel Findikyan on April 9 and 10. Both the Service of Calling to the Priesthood and Ordination and Consecration will take place at St. John the Baptist Armenian Church in Greenfield, WI, where Dn. Albert has been serving as the Deacon-in-Charge since October. The V. Rev. Fr. Norayr Kazazian will serve as the sponsoring priest and Dr. Garo Garibian as the Godfather of the ordination.
“About thirteen years ago, I embarked on the journey to priesthood and now the time is finally approaching for my priestly ordination,” commented Dn. Albert. “During these past years, I have been blessed to study in Jerusalem and at St. Nersess and St. Vladimir’s Seminaries, where I have served in many capacities including deacon and choir director. Now God is calling me to take on my shoulders His responsive and sweet yoke and serve Him and our Holy Church as a priest,” stated Dn. Albert.
Immediately following his ordination, Dn. Albert will spend 40 days in seclusion and prayer at St. Nersess Seminary before returning to St. John as the new pastor. We pray that his priestly ministry will be fulfilling and successful. To attend the ordination, click here.
