Blessing of the Grapes (Khaghoghorhnek) took place at the Church of Holy Resurrection on Sunday 28 January 2018 following the Divine Liturgy.

The tradition dates back to Old Testament times when grapes, the first fruit of the harvest were offered to God for thanksgiving, acknowledging dependency on Him and His provision.

The grapes were kindly donated by the parishioners, a sacred practice carried out with faith and reverence.
