BURBANK — For the Armenian Apostolic Church, the Motherland and the Diaspora, the year 2015 is historic and symbolic, indeed. The year is a cornerstone for our people as we prepare to commemorate the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide. However, the Centennial is also a testament to the Resurrection and the spiritual reawakening of the Armenian people.
A number of commemorative events, organized by the Armenian Genocide Centennial Committee of the Western United States, are scheduled to be held locally and on the national scale throughout the year.
At the Diocesan level, a monument in honor of the Armenian martyrs will be dedicated on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. Hundreds are expected to attend the ceremonial event which will be presided by the Primate. All are invited.
