Seminary Dean Makes Presentation at ACYO Convention
Over the January 12-14 weekend, Fr. Mardiros Chevian, dean, traveled to St. Gregory the Illuminator Armenian Church in Pasadena, CA, to attend the annual ACYO Annual General Convention and Assembly of the Western Diocese. His Eminence Archbishop Hovnan Derderian, Primate of the Western Diocese and vice-president of the seminary board of directors, presided.
While there, Fr. Mardiros presented on St. Nersess Seminary and shared the new seminary video. He also spent time meeting with the ACYO members representing parishes throughout the Western Diocese. On Sunday, Fr. Sarkis Petoyan, pastor of St. Gregory and a seminary graduate, celebrated Divine Liturgy, while Der Mardiros offered the sermon on “The Call to Serve” to a filled church with a large number of young people in attendance. Before leaving, he met with two potential candidates who are interested in studying at the seminary.
