Ոտնլուայ – Washing of the Feet Service at Holy Trinity Armenian Church
On Thursday, March 29, 2017 the ceremony of the Washing of the Feet took place at Holy Trinity Armenian Church of Toronto.
The students of graduating class of St. Sahag & St. Mesrop Armenian Saturday School took part in this ceremony.
Christ, displaying true humility and humbleness, washed the feet of his disciples after the last Supper (Jn 13:1-16). Following His example, priests in the Armenian Church humble themselves and kneel down on the bema, in front of the Church altar, and wash the feet of children or servants of the church, anointing their feet with blessed oil.
