Majority of Javahk Armenian churches destroyed

PanARMENIAN.Net - There are churches in all 72 Armenian villages of Akhalkalaki region, yet the majority of them are destroyed, Akhalkalaki Holy Cross church prior, reverend father Tatev Marukyan said.

As he told PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, “We’re making our best efforts to attract Javahk people to churches. 4 churches have already been restored. Holy Echmiadzin greatly assists us, sending literature and organizing visits of Armenian priests. Still, Armenian churches in Georgia are undergoing hard times. Armenian Apostolic Church is still unregistered in Georgia and there’s no information as to when that will happen. As you know, Georgians have a claim for some of our churches. But we’re still struggling, assisted by local population,” reverend father emphasized.
