St. David Armenian Church Announces New Publication

St. David Armenian Church Announces New Publication

Boca Raton, FL – On Sunday, March 25, St. David Armenian Church proudly presented a book dedication “Walking Through The Armenian History And Faith”, an instructional handbook authored by our Pastor, Very Reverend Fr. Dr. Nareg Berberian.  It is a summary of the Armenian faith, its history, liturgy, theology, traditions and customs.

An enthusiastic introduction was given by Reverend Fr. Garabed Kochakian, Pastor of St. John Armenian Church in Detroit, Michigan who spoke very highly of Fr. Nareg’s ministry as a priest for 20 years, remarking that he has been a great asset to our Diocese. He presented Fr. Nareg’s book as very functional for those who want to learn about their history and traditions outlining important topics to make these connections more easily. It is also a helpful guideline for the teachers and the students of our Sunday School and our Armenian School, as well as college students and adults, and for non-Armenians to familiarize themselves with the Armenian church and its traditions.

Fr. Nareg thanked Fr. Garabed for his thoughtful words of support and Chris Zakian for editing the book, and said that he is looking forward to publishing additional works in the near future.

If you are interested in obtaining a copy of this book at a cost of $12.00 (including postage), you may contact the Church office by phone (561 994-2335) or via e-mail:
