On New Armonk Campus
Construction is progressing on our new Armonk campus, with the building of the Theological Center and Chapel and the renovation of four existing buildings. It is clear we will need these larger facilities (about twice the size of our current New Rochelle campus in square footage) to house the expanded student body and new programs.

How Armenians Pray -
Public Lecture April 23
What are the spirit, ethos and peculiarities of Armenian prayer? What do these qualities tell us about the distinctive Christian witness of this ancient church? What insights might Armenian Christianity offer to others who seek meaningful faith today?
The public is invited to learn more about ancient Christian spirituality from V. Rev. Fr. Daniel Findikyan, who will be presenting this topic on April 23 at the General Theological Seminary, located at 440 W. 21st Street (9th & 10th Ave) in New York City. This St. Nersess sponsored lecture begins at 7pm and is followed by a wine and cheese reception. For more info, click here or call 914-636-2003.
