JURAKALOUTZ LANTERNS / ՃՐԱԳԱԼՈՒՅՑ
On Saturday , January 5th, Christmas Eve Services will begin at 5:00 p.m. In Armenian, this service is referred to as “Jurakalouytz.”
For this service, we ask that you bring a lantern or candle to take home “the Light of Christ ” with you. The “lighting of candles ” (Jurakalouytz) marks the beginning of a joyous Christmas Eve and the spreading of the light of Christ. By bringing your lamps you will take home the flame of Christ.
