TEGHER, Armenia — Today, Sunday, October 2, we attended the divine liturgy at Sourp Astvatsatsin Church in the village of Tegher in Aragatsotn Province. This church dates possibly back to the 13th century. Here we lit candles, prayed and received communion with deep emotional feelings. We felt as if the holy spirit were there and we heard Vahan Tekeyan’s poem “Yegheghetsin haygagan” [The Armenian Church]. The attached video and pictures give an inkling for the faithful of the road to heaven.
