Close to 500 people crowded into a festively-adorned St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral on Saturday evening, December 15, to celebrate the blessings of Christmas—and to honor a milestone in the history for New York’s great Gomidas Choir.
One of the most mysterious relics of the Armenian Church—a sacred object from the deepest roots of Christianity—is the Holy Lance of Keghart.
It was altogether appropriate that, a few days after Thanksgiving, New York’s St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral should ring with “spiritual gratitude” for the monumental “Armenia!” exhibit at the world famous Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its “Armenia!” exhibit, St. Vartan Cathedral will hold a special liturgical program on the evening of Tuesday, November 27, at 7:30 p.m.
The religious meaning behind the architecture and art of New York’s St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral was the subject of a lecture on Thursday evening, October 11.
