Rev. Fr. Anthony Tandilyan

2019-Present

He was born (1975)  in the small village of Haxpat, Armenia-- a wonderful place surrounded by mountains and valleys.  After graduating the local high school (1992), he continued his education in the Pedagogical College of Yerevan and received his bachelor’s  degree in education with the dream of becoming a teacher. In 1995 he was accepted to the Pedagogical Institute of Erevan when a radical change happened in his life as the communism collapsed in Armenia after 70 years. Instead of continuing his education in graduate school, he chose to become a member of the Armenian Orthodox Church with the hope of serving as a clergy. This required a long journey of seven years in the monastic community of the Mother See of Holy Echmiadzin. With God’s Grace he graduated Gevorkian seminary in the summer of 2001, after defending his thesis concerning “Bioethical problems of possible human cloning”(In this work the moral and ethical aspects of the achievements of modern biology are discussed).
