Plovdiv Delegation in Diyarbakir, Turkey

From the AGBU Europe blog we receive this news:

On October 23, 2011 in the city of Diyarbakir, Turkey a Holy Litury was held in the restored Armenian church “Surp Giragos”.

AGBU Plovdiv dispatched representatives directly on the spot. The managing editor of AGBU Voice met with the architect of the restored church. The mayor, Osman Baydemir, held a speech in front of nearly 3,000 Armenians from Turkey, Canada, USA, Lebanon, Syria, Holland, Germany and others.

On Sunday, October 23, a group of Armenians raised as Sunni Muslims, were baptized. During the Ottoman era their ancestors had accepted Islam after involuntary homicide in 1915.
