On Sunday afternoon, April 24, a large congregation gathered in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, to remember the 107th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

Members of the Armenian community in Ireland joined with members of the cathedral community to keep silence and to voice both the pain and the resilience of the Armenian people worldwide.

Archbishop Michael Jackson was joined by the Armenian Honorary Consul in Ireland Mr Ohan Yergainharsian and by Dean Dermot Dunne.

Children were given a special opportunity to express the sorrow and the hopes of the Armenian people and their faith in God.

The service concluded at the khachkar which was dedicated in the grounds of the cathedral in 2015, on the Centenary of the Genocide.
