The Diocesan Bylaws

The Eastern Diocese is governed by a set of bylaws, detailing spheres of jurisdiction and organization; the duties of the Primate, Board of Trustees, Diocesan Council, Diocesan Assembly, clergy, auditing committee, parish council, and parish assemblies; and other general provisions. Currently, the Bylaws is comprised of 101 articles.

A process of amendment to the Bylaws is available through the Diocesan Assembly; any amendments must be approved by His Holiness, the Catholicos of All Armenians.
