On May 6 St. James Church was consecrated after the construction that lasted for a year and a half. It is an important event in the life of the people of Artsakh because the capital did not have a church. The primate of the Artsakh Diocese Archbishop Parghev Martirosian says there was a church in Stepanakert in the late 19th century, which was consecrated in the early 20th century. It was St. George Church with St. George School. In 1936 the church was demolished, and the theater was built in its place. The first liturgy in the new church was dedicated to the army. The president of NKR, high-ranking government officials, the commissioned staff was present. The sponsor of the church Nerses Yepremian together with his son and daughter had arrived from California. “The date of the consecration of the church is symbolic. 15 years ago on this day when our army was going to liberate Shushi, the Cross appeared in the sky of Artsakh, and our soldiers bore the cross on them,” said Archbishop Martirosian.
