Pontifical Thanksgiving Prayer Held In Prelacy Churches

On Sunday, June 30, 2019, the 24th anniversary of the election and consecration of His Holiness Aram I as Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia was celebrated within Western Prelacy Churches with Pontifical Thanksgiving Prayer.

H.H. Aram I Catholicos was elected Pontiff on June 28, 1995, and consecrated on July 1, 1995.

H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, presided over Divine Liturgy, delivered his message, and conducted Pontifical Thanksgiving Prayer service at Holy Martyrs Church in Encino.

His Eminence delivered the sermon, focusing on the life of Catholicos St. Nerses the Great, whose feast was observed the day prior. The Prelate reflected on the Christ-centric life and service of St. Nerses the Great, adding that H.H. Catholicos Aram I was elected Pontiff 24 years ago with the same spirit, commitment, wisdom and mission as St. Nerses, and flourished the Catholicosate of the Great House of Cilicia, keeping strong ecumenism and interfaith dialogue and leading the spiritual and national lives of the Armenian faithful throughout the Diaspora.

At the conclusion of his sermon, the Prelate prayed for the Lord to grant our Pontiff a healthy and long life to lead the Catholicosate and faithful.
