BREAD & SALT: SEASON 1: Seeking Stillness


Great Lent is the 40-day period of physical and spiritual preparation that leads to Easter. Although it is a period of fasting, does the Armenian Church teach us to “give something up?” Watch this video, and learn what Armenian Church fathers teach us about making room for prayer, introspection, and worship.

The Eastern Diocese is pleased to introduce a new video series, titled “Bread and Salt: Stories from the Armenian Church.” In this inaugural episode, Kathryn Ashbahian explains the symbolism of the “Water Blessing” service performed in the Armenian Church on January 6, the Feast of the Nativity and Theophany of Our Lord.
