This past June, Fr. Jose announced that our Vestry had called the Rev. Dcn. Astor Yelangueuzian to the position of Rector upon his retirement at the end of 2020. Prior to that transition, Dcn. Astor will serve alongside Fr. Jose as our Assistant Rector.
As a 30-year resident of Los Angeles, Dcn. 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, with plans of being consecrated to the Priesthood sometime this year. He and his lovely wife, Narineh, are the blessed parents of two sons, Sebastian and John-Paul.
On Sunday, August 2, Dcn. Astor shared his testimony during our 10am Livestream Worship Service. (You can watch Dcn. Astor's testimony 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 Dcn. Astor in the coming weeks!
