On March 3, the Armenian Apostolic Church celebrates Saint Vartanants holiday in memory of Armenian victims in Battle of Avarayr.

The Battle of Avarayr was fought on May 26, 451 on the Avarayr Plain in Vaspurakan, between the Armenian Army under Saint Vardan and their Sassanid rulers. The Persians had heavy casualties on the battlefield and the Armenians were eventually guaranteed religious freedom.

A liturgy will be conducted at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin and other Armenian churches.
