On October 28, under the presidency of His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians; a service dedicated to the Holy Martyrs of the Armenian Genocide was offered in Westminster Abbey, London, UK.

Attending the service were Mr. Serzh Sargsyan, President of the Republic of Armenia; and HRH Prince Charles of Wales. The commemoration service of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide was also attended by clergy of the Armenian Diocese of Great Britain and Ireland, led by His Grace Bishop Hovakim Manukian, Diocesan Primate; representatives of Sister Churches, State officials, and guests.

During the service, the representatives of Sister Churches, and the descendants of the Genocide survivors, offered a prayer for the Genocide victims, expressing gratitude to all those states, organizations, and individuals, who put their efforts to restore justice and peace in the world today. The attendees also prayed for the tranquil and prosperous life of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Armenia. The St. Yeghishe Armenian Church Choir of London sang hymns, led by Aris Nadiryan.
