My first Armenian Orthodox baptism in Alexandria

July 21, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

When I accepted to document Lara's baptism a few years ago, little did I know about the Armenian Orthodox Church in Alexandria.  I was awestruck by the beauty of the church and the richness of the baptism rituals.  The shrine is magnificent and it is where most of the ceremonial prayers will take place.  The baptism with water is performed in an adjacent room in front of all the guests.  As I'm writing this blog and trying to depict the rites and rituals around Lara's christening, I am reminded that when all is said and done, the heavens rejoiced as Lara was reunited with our Lord and Savior.  I'm thankful to have been called to do this and be a small part in the single most important event in her life.
