WASHINGTON, DC — The Armenian-American community will gather in Washington, D.C., this week for the national observance of the centennial of the Armenian Genocide. Special events are scheduled for May 7 to 9—including an ecumenical prayer service at the National Cathedral, a Pontifical Divine Liturgy, a memorial concert, and an awards banquet honoring those who helped the survivors.

His Holiness Karekin II, the Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, and His Holiness Aram I, the Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, both will be in the United States to lead the Washington commemoration. They will be joined by Armenians from across the U.S., under the auspices of the Eastern and Western Dioceses, and the Eastern and Western Prelacies.

Both the ecumenical prayer service—scheduled for May 7 at the National Cathedral—and the Pontifical Divine Liturgy—scheduled for May 9 at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception— will be broadcast live online.
