FIRST CHURCH OF CAPITAL IS BUILT

Azat Artsakh, Nagorno Karabakh Republic [NKR]
19 July 2006

Stepanakert does not have a church, and many people say this is one of
the reasons why sects multiply. Several months ago the construction
of a church started on Hekimyan Street. The place of the church was
chosen by the Primate of the Artsakh Diocese. The church bears the
name of Patriarch Saint Hakob of Mtsbin. The church is built on the
donation of an Armenian from the United States, who had promised
several years ago to build a church for his son Hakob who died
untimely. Father Minas says the church will be a great stimulus for
reaching great aims, and will help struggle against sects.
