Georgian Orthodox Church celebrates the holy Annunciation Day

The Orthodox Church is celebrating Holy Annunciation Day (Khareba). The holiday depicts the primary annunciation that was made by Archangel Gabriel to Virgin Mary about the birth of Jesus Christ.

While she was reading the Bible, Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary and declared that soon she would give birth to a son, who would be named Jesus. It was the annunciation not only for the Virgin Mary but for the whole of mankind.

Church service will be conducted at acting churches. Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II will give the solemn liturgy at Sameba (Holy Trinity) Cathedral.
