The pastors and boards of trustees of all the parishes affiliated with the Eastern Prelacy are committed to supporting our community against the unprecedented threat posed by the coronavirus pandemic. We are sure that our elderly enjoy the love and care of their immediate family, but if they live alone and need help to buy food, medicine or other items, we urge them to call their local church.
Prelacy pastors will provide spiritual nourishment to our faithful with daily reflections that will be streamed on our website and Facebook page every day at noon (12:05 pm ET). You can watch the daily reflections here.
As Holy Liturgy and church services are being held behind closed doors and our religious education programs are suspended, we are pleased to report that:
Rev. Fr. Nareg Terterian, pastor of St. Sarkis Church (Douglaston, New York), will be doing online Bible studies every Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm. You can follow them here.
Archdeacon Shant Kazanjian, the Director of AREC will conduct educational sessions on Exploring Tools for Prayer every Thursday evening at 7:00 pm, starting April 2.
We are glad to inform you that Ms. Haigan Tcholakian (Michigan), has initiated a Children Bible Story time, every day 3:00-3.15pm. It will be shared on our Facebook page.
We all need to pray, without exceptions. Nevertheless, those who wish a personalized prayer may request it by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With God’s blessing, and the cooperation of all of us we will defeat this deadly calamity.
With fatherly love and prayerfully,
Eastern United States
