STUDENTS OF HAYBUSAK UNIVERSITY ALSO PARTICIPATED IN THE MEMORIAL DAY OF ST SARGIS THE GENERAL (ST SARGIS ZORAVAR)

On 23 January, on the occasion of the feast of St Sargis the General (St Sargis Zoravar) Day, a liturgy was delivered in the three churches of the Araratian Patriarchal Diocese (APD) named after the Saint. In the St. Sargis Church the liturgy was served by the presidency of T. Navasard Archbishop Ktchoyan. RA President Serzh Sargsyan, RA Minister of Defense Seyran Ohanyan, Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan, high-ranking servicemen and most prominent soldiers were present. The officiating priest of the liturgy was Ter Shahe Hayrapetyan. Upon completion of the liturgy His Holiness Navasard blessed the soldiers and other faithful Armenians with the Right of Saint Sargis. It has been about 11 years since the exhibitions, concerts and national traditional feasts dedicated to St Sargis the General Day are organized by the initiative and with the blessing of APD Vice-Prelate T. Navasard Archbishop Kchoyan. While celebrating the holiday, the programs devoted to the Armenian Army and Armenian soldiers are especially highlighted.

This year, at the end of the liturgy, the members of the youth unions of the diocese again organized a cross procession led by High Priest T. Petros Malyan. Both students of Haybusak and other universities participated in the cross procession which started from Prelate S. Sargis Church and through Mashtots and Baghramyan Avenues reached the Lovers’ Park. The concert was held in the Lovers’ Park which was led by His Holiness Archbishop T. Navasard Kchoyan. We once again congratulate to all lovers and wish them everlasting happy days and, of course, big love. Let this year patronize lovers. Happy St Sargis the General Day!
