ANTELIAS–Initiated by His Holiness Catholicos Aram I–and through the efforts of the chairman of the Armenian Writers’ Union Levon Ananian–a fund has been established in Antelias for the Writers’ Union under the auspices of the Armenian Catholicosate of Cilicia.
His Holiness had made an appeal for such a fund during a conference of Armenian writers in the Middle East–held on March 26-28. The meeting–attended by 40 writers from Lebanon and Syria–provided the opportunity to raise the issue–as well as begin the initial fundraising. His Holiness also issued a circular requesting all the prelacies and executive councils of the Holy See of Cilicia to take part in the effort.
The Armenian Catholicosate of Cilicia appeals to all Armenia’s to participate in the fund–and help Armenia’s writers and intellectuals preserve our history and culture.
