The good news of the birth of Christ was spread from the Mother See of Holy Etchmadzin: “Christ is born and revealed, Good Tidings to you and to us,” - announced Catholicos Karekin II just as he does every year, which people exchanged with each other inside the Church, then later - in their houses.
Since the Mother Cathedral is in renovation currently, the Candlelight Divine Liturgy and, in general, Sunday Liturgies, are attended by the clergy of the Mother See by the presidency of Patriarch Karekin II at St. Gayane Monastery of Etchmiadzin.
