Christmas Mass 2021
ARMENIAN CHURCH BANGLADESH 8TH JANUARY 2021
A Christmas Mass was held by The Church of Bangladesh hosted at the Armenian Church Dhaka on Friday 8th January 2021. With limited space available, the church was able to accommodate just over 60 people in a Covid-19-safe environment. Afterwards refreshments were served. The service was conducted by Reverend Simpson Mazumdar, assisted by Father Franco, and Brother Guillaume respectively. Given the current pandemic, we are extremely grateful any kind of service was held at all, and our thanks are extended to Reverend Simpson for ensuring it was conducted safely.

We are delighted to announce there will be a Christmas Mass conducted at the Armenian Church, Dhaka on Friday 8th January 2021 at 5pm.
Please note this is NOT an Armenian service.
The service will be undertaken by the Church of Bangladesh led by Reverend Simson Mazumdar, and assisted by Father Franko and Brother Guillaume respectively.
**IMPORTANT** Our Church is quite small and, regretfully, because of the Corona virus, we must limit the number of people in the congregation this year to 50 individuals only.

Mr. Michael Martin

Mr. Michael Martin
It is with the utmost regret and deepest sadness that we must inform you of the passing away today of Mr. Michael Martin the late caretaker of the Armenian Church in Dhaka. He was 89 years of age.
It was only a few years ago Mr. Martin had retired to Canada to spend more time with his family. A devoted family-man he particularly enjoyed being with his grandchildren.
Mr. Martin was instrumental in maintaining the survival of the Armenian Church in Dhaka. Without the many personal sacrifices and complete devotion to the church, the premises and the history of the Armenians in Dhaka, would not have survived today. He and his family spearheaded what can only be described as a monumental effort to preserve our beautiful church, and it is something that will never be forgotten.
You may wish to take some time to read Mr. Martin’s life story, written in his own words http://armenianchurchbangladesh.com/…/mr-martin-in-his-own…/
Our condolences are extended to Mr. Martin’s family and in particular his daughters, Eleanor, Christine and Cheryl.
