27 June 2014

A committee of architects and engineers nominated by His Holiness Aram I have been working on transforming the monastery in Bikfaya to receive the pilgrims, who, in 2015, will come from the diaspora to join the commemorative events. The area around the Genocide monument is being expanded and new monuments are being erected to recall the history of the Genocide and the sufferings of the Armenian people caused by Turkey. New buildings are being erected to provide space for the clergy as well as for commemorative activities.  Some projects have already been completed and others will be ready for April 2015.
