A Call to Action in Support of the Syrian Armenian Community

On Friday, August 24, 2012, the Western Prelacy issued the following correspondence to its parishes:

“We are all familiar with the escalating conflict in Syria and the mounting humanitarian crisis faced by our Armenian brethren.

Heeding the call of H.H. Catholicos Aram I, the Armenian-American community of the Western U.S. is contributing to the relief efforts and for this purpose has formed a Joint Committee in Support of the Syrian Armenian Community comprised of the spiritual leaders of the Apostolic, Catholic, and Evangelical Churches, three political parties, and benevolent organizations.

We hereby urge our parishes to encourage the committee’s efforts and begin actively working towards this cause by raising funds to assist in the humanitarian relief effort beginning this Sunday, August 26. Donations will be transferred to the Catholicosate of the Holy See of Cilicia by way of the joint committee.

Please make checks payable to the “Syrian Armenian Relief Fund”

P.O. Box 1948, Glendale, CA 91209-1948.”
