ALEPPO (Armenpress)–The concluding ceremony of the 1700th anniversary of Christianity in Armenia was held on Saturday at the St. Mary’s church in Aleppo–Syria–led by the His Holiness Aram I–Catholicos of the Holy See of Cilicia–who went to Aleppo specificaly to preside over this event.
According to Holy House of Cilicia’s public relations department–representatives of Syrian government officials–Armenia’s Ambassador to Syria–and Armenia’s Consul in Aleppo were present at the ceremony.
"The 1700-year-old Armenian church did not speak but acted–did not dictate but served. The Church has always been a stable part of Armenian society and has accommodated to the changing times–but the church itself or its mission have never changed," said Catholicos Aram I.
The anniversary chorus "Lusavorich" and the Armenian-Syrian artists took part in the ceremony.
