McCabe pilgrims are greeted in Armenia by the head of the Armenian Church

During June the Very Revd Geoffrey Marshall, Dean of Brecon cathedral led a party of pilgrims to Armenia.  A highlight of the pilgrimage was an audience with His Holiness Karekin 11, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of all Armenians.  They were joined for the occasion at the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, the Headquarters of the Armenian Church, by Revd John Barker, the representative of the Archbishop of Canterbury in Armenia.

 

We loved the formality of the occasion.  I hope you will enjoy this three minute video.   The commentary is very verbose and in Armenian, but the pleasure gained by all involved is clear to see.
