YEREVAN. – Catholicos of All Armenians, Karekin II, held the lay celebration of his birthday at a fairly luxurious environment, on Saturday evening, 168 Zham daily writes.

“After holding the formal birthday ceremony at [the Holy See of St.] Etchmiadzin, he, together with the representatives of Armenia’s highest authority, also organized a lay banquet. According to our information, Karekin II celebrated his birthday ceremony at [capital Yerevan’s] Hrazdan Gorge’s recently-popular Florence Restaurant Complex, which belongs to now former Yerevan Mayor, Karen Karapetyan. The Catholicos’ birthday brought together virtually all of Armenia’s political and business elite,” 168 Zham writes.
