It’s that time of year again!

St. Sarkis Day, the moveable feast day on the Armenian Church calendar, is this Saturday, January 27, 2024 – 63 days before Easter, March 31st.

I’ve written about this event numerous times over the years, so I won’t repeat myself – BUT I will offer you links so if you’re not familiar with the importance of St. Sarkis, or the recipes associated with this special day, you’ll see for yourself what this day means to Armenians.

An Extra Special Note …
As a member of Charlotte, NC’s own St. Sarkis Armenian Church, I’m delighted to announce that as of next month, we will have a full-time clergy, Rev. Fr. Norayr Kazazian.
The St. Sarkis parish humbly welcomes Fr. Norayr and his family into their new home!
