Catholicosate of Cilicia
Antelias - Lebanon
Upon his return from his pastoral visit to the United States of America and Canada, His Holiness Aram I convened the members of the brotherhood to brief them on his visit. He spoke of his contacts with the members of the community, who expressed their respect and appreciation for the Catholicosate’s emphasis on the vocation of the Church and its response to the issues of the Armenian communities.
Catholicos Aram I then invited Rev Bedros Manuellian, who had accompanied him, to share his impressions. Rev Bedros said that he observed the appreciation the people in the US and Canada feel toward the Catholicosate for its activities and its pronouncements regarding the Nation. Hence, he suggested, the brotherhood should consider the prlacies as the pulse of the Catholicosate.
The meeting ended with Very Rev Housig Mardirossian updating the clergy on the Anglican Oriental Orthodox Theological Dialogue to be held in Antelias 24-29 October.
