About 1,000 more kids became godchildren of the Patriarch. The 66th universal baptizing of infants was held in the Trinity Cathedral.
After the baptism, the Catholicos-Patriarch came to the church and blessed the baptized kids.
The idea of universal baptizing belongs to Ilia II and its goal is to improve the demographic situation in the country.
Catholicos-Patriarch baptizes the third and subsequent children. He has more than 45 000 godchildren.
