Seminary Graduate Spends Time With Students
Recently, Bishop Vahan Hovhanessian, a 1989 St. Nersess graduate, spent a week on campus with the seminarians. He participated in daily worship services, engaged in discussions with students, and enjoyed meals with students and staff.
Vahan Srpazan has launched a new project called the GAÏDS Foundation. The word itself in Armenian means “Spark”. The foundation aims to serve as a financial spark to promote academic research in the fields of the Armenian Bible, in particular its manuscripts and theology, with commentaries in Armenian. The aim of the foundation is to provide scholarships for graduate students and post-graduate researchers, lectureship at accredited universities and institutes such as St. Nersess Seminary, and financial support to maintain, digitize and preserve Armenian manuscripts. The Foundation hopes to be able to finance a center for Armenian Research in these fields of interest. Thank you Vahan Srpazan for spending time with us!
