Wow!  Whoever thought there would be an Armenian liturgy in Dublin?

Quote
On Sunday, 17 October, over
one hundred Armenians
gathered in the Taney Parish
of the Church of Ireland, in
Dublin to participate in the
first Badarak in the history of
the Armenian community of
that city celebrated by the
Primate, Very Revd 
Dr. Vahan Hovhanessian.

Glory to God!   :angel:
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

The very earlliest strains of Christianity in Ireland come from the Oriental Churches. There is also evidence that the tradition of monumental stone crosses comes from Armenia. It is wonderful that now there an Armenian Liturgy available there after so many centuries!
