Prelate Welcomes New Homenetmen Regional Executive

On Tuesday, December 4, 2012, H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, welcomed the Homenetmen Western Region newly-elected Regional Executive to the Prelacy. The delegation was led by Chairman Mr. Garnik Abrahamian. The Prelate was joined by Religious Council Chair Very Rev. Fr. Muron Aznikian and Executive Council officers Mrs. Rima Boghossian, Mr. Geore Chorbajian, Mr. Meher Der Ohanessian, and Mr. Toros Kejejian.

It was the first official visit of the new Regional Executive and the members had come to receive the Prelate’s blessings. The members were also the first official guests of the Prelate since his return from Antelias where he was participating in meetings at the Catholicosate.

The guests reported on the upcoming activities and project of Homenetmen WR in the athletic, scouting, and educational realms, and the collaboration of the Prelacy in these areas. Collaboration between the two institutions is especially strong in the scouting arena where Homenetmen follows the curriculum set forth by the Prelacy for its “St. Mesrob Mashdots” program, which is recognized by the Boy Scouts of America. Homenetmen had also recently requested to have an annual requiem service for its departed members the first Sunday of November. This decision was implemented for the first time this past November and will continue in the following years.

The guests also presented projects relating to individual chapters having their own centers to expand their athletic and scouting endeavors. Also discussed were general concerns regarding the education and instruction of our youth.

The Prelate and Councils’ members conveyed their well wishes to the new members in the fulfillment of their mission, and in conclusion the Prelate presented the guests with copies of Garo Bedrosian’s latest book “Journey to the Armenian Heritage”.
