Soorp Tsnund (Christmas) Observance

On January 4th St. Kevork, Armenian Apostolic Church celebrated “Jrakalouys,” the Lighting of the candles, and on January 5th, the church celebrated the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ and His baptism. Many faithful Armenian believers from Portland and the neighboring cities attended the Badarak Service to celebrate Christmas.





Holy Badarak was served by Father Yeremia Khachatryan.

During the service the Christmas message of Archbishop Hovnan Derderian was read; afterwards, Father Yeremia gave a sermon on the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. At the end of the Badarak, the ceremony of blessing of water was performed. Napoleon Koundoubegian served as a godfather during the blessing of the water.

After the Badarak, a wonderful meal that was prepared by the Ladies’ Society of St. Kevork Chruch was served. A joyous and festive atmosphere prevailed upon St. Kevork Church that day.

We pray that the light of Christmas will shine in every believer’s heart.

Every year in October the Armenian Apostolic Church celebrates the holiday of the Holy Translators. On this day, the Armenian Church remembers and honors all the clergies who were involved in the translation of the Holy Bible and other authors who are considered the pillars of Armenian literature. These great leaders are remembered and honored throughout the centuries for the tremendous work they have done and for the literary treasures that they have left to the Armenian Church and nation. These saints are: Mesrob Mashdots, Yeghisheh, Movses Khorenatsi, Unconquerable David the philosopher, Gregory Naregatsi, and Nercess Glayetsi “the graceful.”
