Triple Holiday Commemorated at St. Mary

It has become a traditional at St. Mary to commemorate the Triple Holiday every May. This year commemoration took place on May 12. The Triple Holiday is commemorated in Artsakh to celebrate three very important events, all of which took place on May 9: the anniversary of victory in the WWII, the liberation of Shoushi and the anniversary of the establishment of the Artsakh Defense Army.

The Badarak was celebrated by a guest clergy from the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin Rev. Fr. Gabriel Vardanyan. Present were the Embassy staff, NKR representative Mr. Robert Avetisyan. A special hokehankist service was offered for the souls of all who gave their lives for the liberation of Artsakh. The memorial reception in the church hall was hosted by NKR office in the US and St. Mary Parish Council. During the hokehankist the community also prayed for the soul of long time parishioner Mr. Edward Onanian on the occasioin of his 40 day passing.
