The last Abbot who was forced out of Dadivank was celebrating Divine Liturgy in the St. Gayane monastery
Priests from the Diocese of Artsakh also participated in the liturgy under the solemn leadership of His Holiness the Patriarch. Father Derenik, Celebrant of the day, celebrated his last Liturgy in Dadivank on September 24. "Now in our Artsakh, no prayers are heard in our churches. These are the few minutes (or maybe years) when Jairus' daughter died, but the Lord resurrected her: this is how the resurrection of our nation should be," says Fr. Derenik Sahakyan.
