A delegation representing the ARF Central Committee of the Western US paid an official visit to the Armenian Prelacy on Wednesday–July 7–to congratulate Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian on his recent re-election as Prelate–for a third term–by the National Representative Assembly.
The ARF delegation was headed by CC Representative Hovig Saliba. Also present at the meeting were members of the Prelacy Executive Council–whom the ARF reps congratulated on their election as well–wishing them continued success.
The meeting also provided an opportunity to exchange views on issues of concern to both the Church and community organizations. Discussions centered on bringing Armenian-American youth closer to the Church and other national institutions–and in doing so to collaborate and coordinate efforts–particularly in light of their shared goal of preserving Armenian identity and enlisting the potential of the youth in the service of the Armenian people.
The Prelate and Executive Council members welcomed this initiative. The delegation–in turn–reaffirmed both its deep confidence in the Prelate and Council and its willingness to continue the mutual cooperation and coordinated work in order to ensure the success of the Prelacy’s undertakings.
