Proclamation the Year of the Diaspora

His Holiness Catholicos Aram I of the Great House of Cilicia has proclaimed 2022 the YEAR OF THE DIASPORA, continuing and enriching tradition of designating every year with a theme, which he started a quarter of a century ago.

In view of the pandemic and the threats against the Motherland and the Diaspora, His Holiness, considering all facets of Armenian religious, political, cultural, and social life, and with his experience, wisdom, and farsightedness, with this proclamation calls on our organizations to turn the Diaspora the focus of their plans and activities. The premise is the profound conviction that a strong Diaspora means a strong Homeland and, conversely, a strong Homeland is the precondition for a strong Diaspora.

On this occasion, the Prelates of the Eastern and Western United States and Canada instruct the churches in their jurisdictions to read His Holiness’ proclamation, infused with a positive and inspiring vision. The Prelates also urge every community to turn the precepts contained in the proclamation into a reality within their possibilities, for the progress of the Armenian Church and the glory of Almighty God.
