Feast of the Holy Martyrs of the Armenian Genocide

by Alin Manukyan

On April 24, 2016, the Armenian Church will observe its first Feast of the Holy Martyrs of the Armenian Genocide. A special service will be performed after the Divine Liturgy (Soorp Badarak) to pay tribute to the victims of the Armenian Genocide, who died in 1915 while upholding their Christian faith. The martyrs had been canonized last year in a momentous ceremony at the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin. We celebrate these saints as they live eternally in the glory of God.
