This past June, Fr. Jose announced that our Vestry had called the Rev. Dcn. Astor Yelangueuzian to fill the position of Rector upon Fr. Jose's retirement at the end of 2020, and to serve as Assistant Rector until the transition is complete.
As a 30-year resident of Los Angeles, Fr. Astor has a great love for this city and is extremely passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus with his community. Soon after completing his ThM degree in New Testament studies from Princeton Theological Seminary, he took up Holy Orders and was ordained to the Deaconate in 2018, and then to the Priesthood on August 29 of this year. He and his lovely wife, Narineh, are the blessed parents of two sons, Sebastian and John-Paul.
On Sunday, August 2, Fr. Astor shared his personal testimony during our 10am Service. (See the Video HERE or listen to the Audio HERE.) We continue to extend a warm welcome to the Yelangueuzian family and look forward to hearing more from Fr. Astor in the coming weeks!
