BREAD & SALT: SEASON 2: Crown or Sword


Meet the brave girl whose faith changed the destiny of her people. In a nation of martyrs, she was the first: St. Santukhd, the royal princess who defied her father the king to worship Christ. Her death at a tender age set the Armenians on a path to become the world’s first Christian nation.

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.
