Requiem Mass for Avetisyans in Athens

18:46, 19 January, 2015

ATHENS, 19 JANUARY, ARMENPRESS. A Requiem Mass was served for the
souls of the Avetisyans to rest in peace at the St. Mary Church of
Peristeri. The Avetisyans fell victim to a horrible crime that took
place in Gyumri on January 12. As the Divan of the Greek-Armenian
Diocese reports to “Armenpress”, the Requiem Mass was served under the
direction of Vicar of the Prelacy of the Greek-Armenian Diocese,
Father Friar Khoren Arakelyan and was officiated by Father, Friar
Derenik Sahakyan.

“There was a large crowd at the church. Faithful Armenians had come to
share their pain and sorrow and pray for the souls of the innocent
victims to rest in peace. The Vicar of the Greek-Armenian Diocese
delivered a touching sermon, addressed the faithful Armenians and told
them to pray for the souls of the innocent victims to rest in peace,
to not be depressed and to not recoil from the traps that evildoers
set for the Armenians, but to be strong, resist the sorrow and be able
to find console by praying that the “hands” of evildoers never reach
the Armenian nation and the homeland,” as stated in the message.
