On 7 November 2021, a special Pontifical Blessing (Hayrabedagan Maghtank) service was offered in the Holy Resurrection Church on the occasion of the 22nd anniversary of the consecration of His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians.
During the Pontifical Blessing service, accompanied by the prayers of the faithful, the clergy wished steadfastness to the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin and a successful reign to the Catholicos of All Armenians.
It was on 4 November 1999, that His Holiness was consecrated as the 132nd Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, in a magnificent ceremony at the Cathedral of Holy Etchmiadzin.
In honouring Vehapar’s 22nd anniversary, we stand with him, and with the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, at this critical moment in the life of our nation, church, and people. May God continue to bless and strengthen him in his ministry.
