Dr. Papazian and the Armenian Church

Over the past 50+ years, Dr. Dennis R. Papazian has been active in many ways in the affairs of the Armenian Church. He has served in the Armenian Church Youth Organization, on the Diocesan Council, and on the Board of Directors of St. Nersess Seminary, and as an elector at the 1995 (Karekin I, of blessed memory) and 1999 (Karekin II, the current Catholicos) elections of the Catholicos of all Armenians at Etchmiadzin.. He currently serves as a Trustee of the Diocese of the Armenian Church in America (Eastern United States).

In April of 1995, Dr. Papazian participated in the election of Catholicos Karekin I. His recollections of that trip are included here.

In reviews of two recent books, one by Archbishop Khajag Barsamian and the other by Archbishop Mesrob Ashjian, Dr. Papazian gives his views on Church Unity.

Also of interest is Armenia and the Armenian Church, an essay written in 1987.
