Once again this year, the parishes of the Eastern Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America participated in the annual Artsakh Telethon hosted by Armenia Fund USA. This telethon takes place every year on Thanksgiving Day and the entire proceeds go to aid some aspect of life in the Republic of Nagorno-Karabagh (or Artsakh, as we know it in Armenian).
For many years now, the parishes of the Eastern Prelacy, by order of our Prelate His Eminence Archbishop Oshagan Choloyan, have been holding special collections on designated Sundays and have aided the Prelacy in donating one grand sum -- on behalf of all of us -- toward the telethon.
This year, we are pleased to announce that thanks to the generosity of our parishioners, we were able to collect $750. These proceeds were forwarded to the Prelacy right away. Congratulations to Saint Gregory's parishioners and to all the faithful of the Eastern Prelacy for helping our brothers and sisters in need in the fledgling Armenian republic of Artsakh.
Please take a moment to read the acknowledgement letter we received from the Prelacy for our contribution.
