BREAD & SALT: SEASON 2: Strength of Heart


A young woman on the run. A beastly king obsessed by her beauty. And the destiny of a kingdom hanging in the balance. Watch the story of St. Hripsime and her sisters, whose martyrdom brought a king to ruin, and brought Armenia to the brink of a revolution in faith.

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.
