Members of the Armenian community came together at St. Philip Church in Nice, where the Primate of the Armenian Church of France and of Europe, Bishop Vahan Hovhannisyan celebrated a Holy Mass in memory of victims of the attack in Nice, Nouvelles d’Armenie reports.
He was accompanied by Father Krikor Khachatryan the parish priest and the deacons and cantors.
The faithful then went to the Promenade des Anglais to pray. “We came to honor the victims and show our solidarity, our compassion and share the pain of Nice. To pray is an act of faith but also of resistance, because there must be hope in life,” Bishop Vahan Hovhannisyan said.
