    Virgin Mary service will be held on 15 August by Patriarch Bartholomeo, with participation of Russian and Greek Orthodox Chruches.
    In front of monastery will be installed giant TV screens and sun shades for the expected thousands of Christians travelling to the monastery.

    The Virgin Mary service will be made during Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims.
    It is expected that Muslims will also join the service and related authorities urge the visitors not to eat out of respect, as in Ramadan no Muslim eats during daylight.

    A local newspaper initiated the campaign “We are opening our houses to host Armenians” because the number of Armenian guests in the province is anticipated to be higher than the total capacity of hotels and guesthouses.
    So far, 4,000 families have joined the campaign to host Armenians.
