Dear Faithful people,
During the course of history there are times that demand us to extend our hands to our brothers and sisters to the full extent of our faith. Now is the time, to open our hearts, and guided by our Christian faith, to strengthen the Armenians of Lebanon.
The Lebanese Armenians are living their most difficult days, and our united responsibility will be to move ourselves to action, to show a tangible assistance to the Armenians of Lebanon.
As the spiritual leader of the Western Diocese, we personally, along with our clergy brothers are participating, and we appeal to all community members, to follow our example without reservation. Today the Armenians in Lebanon are deprived of basic living conditions. Our participation will not lesson anything on our end, instead our souls will be filled with the prayers of our brothers and sisters.
And therefore, one more time, we direct all our churches, led by their parish priests and parish councils, and all the organizations, without differentiation, let us open our hearts and assist the Armenians of Lebanon.
You may send your heartfelt donation to the address of the Western Diocese of the Armenian Church, write “My Prayer for Lebanese Armenians” on the memo line.
Our donations will be turned over to the Catholicosate of the Great House of Cilicia.
May God Almighty bless the Lebanese Armenians and keep unshaken, our Holy Church and the children of our nation.
