Manhattan is recognized as the crossroads of the world. St. Illuminator’s Cathedral—the first Armenian Cathedral in the United States—continues to be the crossroads for Armenian tourists. The Cathedral has become a popular stop for tourists from all over the world. Just during the past several weeks the Cathedral welcomed visitors from Venezuela, France, Italy, Lebanon, Canada, and Argentina, as well as those from other parts of the United States.
Last Sunday the Cathedral family happily welcomed newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Hrair and Silva Kazanjian from Australia, who were honeymooning in New York.
