Feast of St. Ghevond the Priest and His Companions

13 Feb 2023

 

The Feast of St. Ghevond the Priest and His Companions is dedicated to the blessed memory of the Armenian priests who fought alongside St. Vartan and the entire Armenian Nation for their Christian faith in 451 A.D. in the Battle of Avarayr.

The eldest among them was Priest St. Ghevond, and among his companions were Catholics Hovsep, Bishop Sahak of Syunik, Bishop Tatik of Basen, Priest Mushe or Mushegh, Priest Arshen, Priest Samuel, Deacons Abraham and Kajajn.

After the Battle of Avarayr, the Persian King Hazkert took revenge on the Armenians and ordered all the brave priests to be killed.

According to the tradition, the Feast of St. Ghevond the Priest and His Companions is deemed the day of the clergy.
