23 December 2013

On Wednesday 18 December 2013 The Committee of ACUSA, Rev. Nechan Lakhoyan, the spiritual advisor to the committee, and his predecessor, Rev. Ghevont Pentezian, met with His Holiness Aram I. 

After expressing his appreciation for all the events organized around the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the Association, Catholicos Aram I invited the committee to assess its activities in view of the changing interests and needs of university students. He then told them of a survey showing that only one-third of the two thousand Armenian youths currently enrolled in Lebanese universities are members of Armenian youth organizations. His Holiness Aram I then encouraged the committee to organize special campaigns to encourage the ‘indifferent youth’ to join the Student Movement.
