Community-Wide Commemoration of the 104th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide

On Wednesday, April 24, 2019, Armenians worldwide commemorated the 104th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide through various religious, cultural, and political events. Locally, a number of events were held, in which the Prelate, Vicar General, Clergy, and Executive Council members participated.

In the morning, a community-wide commemoration organized by the United Armenian Council of Los Angeles took place at the Martyrs’ Monument in Montebello, featuring a religious service officiated by heads of the Armenian Apostolic, Catholic, and Evangelical Churches, speeches by elected officials and community leaders, and placement of wreaths and flowers.

In the afternoon, tens of thousands participated in the March for Justice to the Turkish Consulate, where a special program of remarks and performances took place. The march kicked off with a collective prayer offered by the heads of the Armenian Apostolic, Catholic, and Evangelical Churches, after which each Church leader delivered his appeal.

In the evening, an intercessory prayer was conducted at St. Leon Cathedral in Burbank presided by H.E. Archbishop Hovnan Derderian, Primate, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, H.G. Bishop Mikael Mouradian, Eparch, and Rev. Berdj Djambazian. Messages were read on behalf of each Church.
