The festival of Soorp Sarkis was celebrated during the Divine Liturgy on Sunday 28 January 2018.

Blessings of all those named Sarkis as well as the youth took place during the service, with our church youth, ACYA serving coffee on the lawns after the Divine Liturgy, as a dedication to Soorp Sarkis.

Captain Soorp Sarkis is one of the most beloved saints among the Armenian nation. The folk story of the young woman who saved him and fell in love with him is why young people consider Soorp Sarkis as their intercessor and protector.
