Armenian cross-stone unveiled in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium

An Armenian cross-stone (khachkar) was officially unveiled in the city of Sint-Niklaas, Belgium on Saturday. Attending the solemn ceremony were the Armenia Ambassador to Belgium Anna Aghajanyan, Armenian priests and others.

“This cross is very important to us,” said the Nersisyan family from Sint-Niklaas, who supported the transportation of the monument. “Armenian people are very religious. For us, this cross is a way of talking to God. We had been thinking of ​​erecting such a monument in Sint-Niklaas for a long time, but were not quite sure where to start. We are very happy that we can unveil the cross today. The placement of the stone next to the church is deliberate. Not only from a religious point of view, but also for safety.”
