New Dioceses in Armenia

Catholicos-Patriarch Karekin II (Nersessian) of Echmiadzin and All the Armenians has established two new dioceses for the Church of Armenia on the territory of free Armenia. The Diocese of Vayk is situated in central Armenia and the Diocese of Tavush is located in northeastern Armenia.

Bishop Abraham (Mkrtchian) of Syunik has been appointed Bishop of Vayk, leaving his former diocese vacant, whilst the cathedra of the Tavush Diocese remains vacant for the time being. God grant Bishop Abraham and all the faithful of the new dioceses many, many years! More here.
