St. Nersess Deacons Visit Zohrab Center

July 6, 2013

Nearly thirty participants of the St. Nersess Deacons’ Training Program filled the Zohrab Center last Sunday after having participated in the Divine Liturgy in St. Vartan Cathedral. The teenagers and their staff learned about the Center’s history and work. They also perused the Center’s library and rare book holdings, many attracted especially by the extensive collection of early liturgical books and Bibles, including a fine copy of the first edition Bible in Armenia printed in Amsterdam in 1666.
