Catholicos Consecrates New Church in Kapan

KAPAN (Noyan Tapan)–Catholicos of All Armenia’s Karekin II consecrated a new church in Kapan-St. Mesrop Mashtots-on December 1.

The construction of the church began in 1996 when Catholicos Karekin I was still alive. The church was built mainly with the funding received from the donations of the Zangezur copper-molybdenum plant and former citizens of Kapan–now living abroad.

The Supreme Patriarch congratulated all the people of Kapan and presented the church with a bowl for communion. Syunik Governor Edik Barseghian also attended the ceremony.
