Beloved faithful of the Armenian Holy Apostolic Church,
It is with the sense of gratitude that I address this Annual Appeal to you to inform you about the diocesan activities and to invite you to contribute to the accomplishment of the mission of our Mother Church.
By the Grace of Our Lord and with your support, our Diocese recorded significant accomplishments.
In February 2019, we purchased the former Armen Ontario/AGBU of Toronto property, and in August 2019, we purchased the new Armenian Church and Community Centre of Ottawa.
In February 2019, the Diocese organized an official visit of the Chaplain-General of the Canadian Armed Forces to Armenia to facilitate collaboration between military chaplaincy services of Canada and Armenia.
In August 2019, the Annual Youth Summer Camp “Ararat” had the record number of 188 campers and mentors from across the Diocese.
In May 2020, the Diocesan Children’s Fund for Armenia (CFFA) will be celebrating the 30th anniversary. For three decades, the CFFA has been supporting orphans and families in need in Armenia.
In 2020, the institutional support for participation of young community leaders in the National Christian Youth Summit in Ottawa, held under the auspices of the Speaker of the Senate, will be maintained by the Diocese.
In October 2019, the Canadian Armenian Association for the Performing Arts (CAAPA) co-organized an unprecedented event dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Komitas Vardapet at the prestigious Koerner Hall in Toronto.
Since its establishment in 2017, the Diocesan Stewardship Program has been helping us to ensure vitality and growth of our church.
Through the Diocesan website, yearbook and newsletters, you have been regularly informed about these enormous tasks that required tremendous efforts, and financial resources.
WITHOUT YOUR HELP,
THIS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE.
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
It is our privilege to support our Diocese. I hereby humbly ask you to open your hearts and to support the Mother Church for the Glory of Our Lord on Earth as it is on Heaven! Amen!

ՕՐՀՆԵԱԼ Է ՅԱՅՏՆՈՒԹԻՒՆՆ ՔՐԻՍՏՈՍԻ:
CHRIST IS BORN AND REVEALED!
BLESSED IS THE REVELATION OF CHRIST!
