CLERGY OF THE WESTERN DIOCESE

“A clergyman, as a humble servant of the Church, ought to extend to the flock of Christ an invitation  to a new life” Archbishop Hovnan Derderian

In order to meet the spiritual needs of the largest Armenian com- munity outside Armenia, Archbishop Hovnan Derderian found it necessary to enrich the Diocese with young and capable clergymen.

Thus, in the last decade, 9 clergymen were invited to the Western Diocese for administrative or pastoral duties, 6 young clergymen have been ordained as priests, 270 were ordained as deacons and sub-deacons, and 315 as acolytes.
