Archbishop Vatche Hovsepian was the head of the Western Diocese of the Armenian Church of North America from 1971 to 2003. The Diocese belongs to the Armenican Apostolic Church.

Hovsepian was named in the lawsuit filed in 1993 by Karen King against Father Sasoon Vartabed Zumrookhdian. The suit was settled in 1995.

The archbishop summarily removed Zumrookhdian from the diocese in 1999, although Zumrookhdian said that this had nothing to do with the 1993 lawsuit.
