New Icons for St. Mary Sanctuary
The St. Mary Sanctuary is adorned by three new icons on the left side wall of the Church’s chancel. As the key figures in the history of Armenia’s conversion to Christianity, these icons of St. Gregory the Illuminator, King Drtad the Great, and St. Hripsime have been donated in memory of Mardiros & Dikranouhi Balian and Vartkess Balian and in honor of Rita Balian. We hope that they inspire our faithful in their prayers for years to come. On behalf of St. Mary, we would like to thank Mrs. Rita Balian and her family for their sponsorship.
