Remembrance Day in Armenia today after Feast of the Holy Resurrection of Jesus Christ
A Remembrance Day of the Dead (Merelots) is in Armenia today, on April 17, following the Feast of the Holy Resurrection of Jesus Christ celebrated on Sunday, April 16. To note, on the following Monday of the Cardinal Feasts of the Armenian Apostolic Church, repose of souls’ services are offered in churches and people usually go to the cemetery to honor the memory of their departed ones.
According to tradition, a special Divine Liturgy is also held on these days, when the faithful can remember the names of all the faithful for whom we pray for eternal life.
To remind, the RA Cabinet earlier declared Monday, April 17 as a non-working day, instead scheduling Saturday, May 5, as working day.
