Armenian Christmas Eve and Christmas services were a little different at Sts. Vartanantz Church in Providence, RI, this year due to the pandemic. Both services were open to parishioners with appropriate protocols and were livestreamed as well. Christmas Eve on Tuesday, January 5, included the traditional reading from the Book of Daniel. On Wednesday, January 6, a beautiful Armenian Christmas Badarak was celebrated, and Peter Zaytounian served as the Godfather of the Holy Cross for the Blessing of the Water.
