Both Sees to Celebrate 1 700th Anniversary Together

YEREVAN (Azg) – Catholicos Garegin I held a press conference in the Holy See of Echmiadzin on Wednesday where he described the preparations for the celebration of the 1700th Anniversary of Armenia accepting Christianity as a state religion.

The exhibitions–conferences and pilgrimages will be organized with the help of almost all of the Christian churches and UNESCO. The Catholicos stressed that changes should be accepted in the charters of several branches of the Armenian church–which separated from the Holy See in 1956-58–so that they can unite with the Armenian church.

He stressed that no ill will exists between himself and the Catholicos of Antelias–Aram I. He is prepared to celebrate the 1700th Anniversary of accepting Christianity together with Aram I.
