His Eminence Archbishop Aghan Baliozian, the Pontifical Legate of
India and the Far East, left for Singapore on March 26 to meet with
community members and also preside over two special sacraments at
the Armenian Apostolic Church of St Gregory the Illuminator, the very
first church in Singapore built by the Armenian Community in 1835.

As they report from Sidney, on the evening of his arrival, on occasion
of the 173rd anniversary of the Church, Archbishop Baliozian celebrated
the Divine Liturgy and delivered the sermon in which he reflected on
the mission of the Armenian Church in the lives of Armenians of the
Diaspora most especially in the history of the earlier South-east
Asian communities.
