Proceedings of the 89th Annual Assembly of the Armenian Church of North America The newsletter generated by the Western Diocese dated May 13, 2016 makes the reader feel like the Assembly Meeting was “divinely inspired and grace-filled.” Readers would have no reason to believe otherwise. In truth twice during the meeting, motions to bring a filed complaint against the Primate before the Assembly Delegates were denied by Assembly Chair Adrienne Krikorian, Esq. The delegate who made the motions was cut off by her, asked to sit down, and – as he continued to make his voice heard – threatened to be removed from the meeting. The formal complaint was about the Primate Arch. Hovnan Derderian. Diocesan Council Chair Joseph Kanimian, Esq. and Diocesan Assembly Chair Adrienne Krikorian, Esq. would not allow the delegate to introduce information about as to WHAT TRANSPIRED AT 2016 DIOCESAN ASSEMBLY IN LAS VEGAS!
Immediately before the Vote of Confidence for the Primate, commercials from the Diocesan Council Chair Joseph Kanimian, Esq. and Diocesan Assembly Chair Adrienne Krikorian, Esq. Ladies Society, the Clergy, all offered support for a “Yes” vote. Thus, all the parishes outside of San Diego were not permitted to know about the complaint that was to be entered and discussed at the Assembly Meeting as prescribed in the by-laws. They voted uninformed of the sequence of events against the Primate that was compiled as public information that included correspondence relating to the San Diego Parish. “ON THE LAMPSTAND” is a concise explanation of what transpired against San Diego Parish. This publication would have attempted to illuminate Why, and the Actions and Inactions of His Eminence Archbishop Hovnan Derderian.
“As Armenians struggling against other efforts to misrepresent history and bury unfortunate realities, we must believe that the time is on the side of truth. We are steadfast. We are patient. We will see.” Micah Jendian.
Primate’s statement to the Assembly Delegates: “The livelihood of the Church is conditioned by the collective noble deeds of the reverend clergy and laity.”
In the traditional style of Primate Hovnan Derderian, Council Chair Joseph Kanimian, Esq. and Diocesan Assembly Chair Adrienne Krikorian, Esq. to date, none of the complaints have been addressed as of May, 2019.
