New Armenian church to be consecrated in Yekaterinburg

PanARMENIAN.Net - A newly-built Armenian church will be consecrated in Russia’s Yekaterinburg on October 12.

The consecration ceremony will be held by the Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II and Bishop Ezras Nersisyan, primate of the New Nakhichevan and Russian Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church. The ceremony will host politicians, religious, public and cultural figures, among others.

In 2003, Bishop Ezras Nersisyan consecrated the foundations of the church.

The church construction was sponsored by Masis Nazaryan, the head of Sverdlovsk-based Ani-Hayastan NGO, the chair of the Armenian community since 1996.

The church was designed by architect Hakob Gasparyan, armenianchurch.ru reported.
