Sunday Snapshot:

It seemed fitting on this Day that we adore the Cross that we see a Beautiful Cross raised over the Seattle Area.

 ‘On December 10, 2011, the Armenian Apostolic Church of Seattle celebrated a truly historic and blessed day. His Eminence Archbishop Hovnan Derderian of the Western Diocese travelled to Seattle to perform the Door Opening and Cross Blessing Ceremonies. Then the Cross was raised onto our new Church’s roof. Please watch this video to see more.

For more information about our Church, please visit our Facebook page and our web page at http://www.seattle-armenians.org  ”  Quoted from the Youtube explanation.
