Today is Palm Sunday
This year, the Armenian Apostolic Church celebrates Palm Sunday on April 2, which symbolizes the triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem.
Palm Sunday was celebrated in the functioning churches of the Artsakh Diocese today.
The Primate of the diocese led the Holy Liturgy at the Church of the Holy Mother of God in Stepanakert, where the Reverend Father Vachagan Gyurjyan served the Liturgy. The venerable clergymen of the diocese, Father Matteos Dravants and Father Andreas Tavadyan, also took part in the Liturgy. The church was full, especially with children who came for a blessing on this symbolic day.
At the end of the Liturgy, the Primate blessed the children, after which consecrated willow branches were distributed to the people.
