My First Year’s Homily-Reflections
Sub-Deacon Lazarus Der Ghazarian, M.Th.
After completing several years of diaconal training in the Armenian Orthodox Church, I completed graduate
studies in Orthodox Theology and Pastoral Ministry earning a M.Th. in Applied Orthodox Theology through the
Antiochian House of Studies & the St. John of Damascus Institute of Theology, University of Balamand, Lebanon.
After some time, I completed diaconal formation in the Byzantine Church tradition and became a Diaconal
candidate until my bishop's untimely resignation.  As part of formation, I was required to give homily-reflections.  
The following are a collection of some of my reflection-homilies based on our Byzantine liturgical calendar.
