In connection with the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Khoranashat monastery complex, a Sacred Liturgy was served after a five-year break. "About five years ago, for the first time, after a century-long break, the holy liturgy was served in Koranashat. On May 28, it sounded again: the occasion is the 800th anniversary of the foundation. Bishop Bagrat Galstyan celebrated the holy Liturgy in Koranashat, a few dozen meters from the Azerbaijani positions," the message reads. The Liturgy was followed by the Andastan ceremony. It is noted that the "Gospel of Khoranashat" (1224) was brought to Chinari from Matenadaran named after Mesrop Mashtots, specifically for performing this ritual.
