Christmas Mass 2022

A Christmas Mass was held by The Church of Bangladesh hosted at the Armenian Church Dhaka on Friday 7th January 2022. Even with limited space available, the church was able to accommodate just over 200 people with additional seating being made available adjacent to the entrance in the grounds. Afterwards refreshments were served.

 

The service was conducted by Reverend Martin Adhikari and Brother Guillaume de Wolf respectively.  Our staff were on hand to help make the occasion go smoothly and we think they particularly excelled themselves with the beautiful lighting effect displayed.  Given the current pandemic, we are extremely grateful any kind of service was held at all, and our thanks are extended to both Rev Martin and Brother Guillaume for taking the service and ensuring it was conducted safely.

Our warden, Armen Arslanian speaks about our historic building and his involvement in keeping the church preserved, and our Heritage Coordinator, Liz Chater, speaks about the history of the church as well as her own family ties to Dhaka.

We continue to raise awareness of our unique and special Armenian heritage and the footprint the Armenians had in Bangladesh. To watch the clip please follow either of these links.
