Mass, procession will mark Armenian genocide
The Anglican Cathedral of St. Paul in Portland will commemorate the
Armenian holocaust at a High Mass at 10 a.m. Sunday.
After the Mass at the cathedral at 279 Congress St., a procession
will go to the Armenian Community Memorial on Cumberland Avenue.
A reception will be held in St. Paul’s Parish Hall after the
procession. All are welcome.
More than 1.5 million Armenians died during the genocide by the
Ottoman Empire between 1915 and 1923. A memorial was dedicated last
year to the Armenian community in Portland, which dates back to the
late 19th century.
