The application submitted by Levon (Father Abgar) to restore his priestly rank served as the basis for the Order, as well as a letter of commendation by His Grace Bishop Markos Hovhannisyan, Primate of the Armenian Diocese of Ukraine, and a positive conclusion of an investigation by the Disciplinary Committee of Mother See.

On December 21, during the Evening Service, and in the presence of the Brotherhood of Holy Etchmiadzin, Rev. Fr. Abgar Glchyan renewed his vows in the Mother Cathedral.
