Sydney, Australia – Sunday, 6 February, 2005 on the Feast of St Vartan
the
Warrior, the Divine Liturgy was celebrated by His Eminence Archbishop
Aghan
Baliozian, Primate of the Diocese of the Armenian Church of Australia
and
New Zealand. During the Divine Liturgy, the Encyclical of His Holiness
Karekin II Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians dated 29
January 2005 was read proclaiming 2005 the year of commemorating the
1600th
anniversary of the discovery of the Armenian Alphabet by St Mesrob
Mashdots
at the instigation of King Vramshabouh and Catholicos Sahag. Also during
the Divine Liturgy, Hayrabedagan Makhtank was performed with the full
rank
of clergy and deacons as it was the name day of His Holiness Karekin II.
In this auspicious year of celebration and in acknowledgment of the
national
treasure that is the Armenian Alphabet, Archbishop Baliozian will soon
launch the Inaugural Archbishop’s Writing Award aimed at stimulating
thought
and consciousness in Armenian youth about the relevance of maintaining
the
values and faith of Armenian heritage in communities of the Diaspora in
the
21st Century. The topic for the 2005 Award is “The Armenian Alphabet is
important for the Armenian identity”.

The Archbishop’s Writing Award will become an annual event and is open
to
all Armenian youth from Grades 5 to12 residing in Australia, New
Zealand and
South-East Asia.
