Beloved Faithful Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
On September the 27th, 2020, Azerbaijani armed forces, as a blatant violation of the ceasefire agreements, initiated a large-scale attack along the entire line of contact, bombing peaceful settlements in Artsakh, including the capital Stepanakert. The fighting continues and unfortunately, there have been victims among the civilian population.
In this challenging time, the people of Armenia and Artsakh need our prayers and support.
To respond to the ongoing humanitarian crisis caused by the aggression of Azerbaijan, the Diocese established the Artsakh Humanitarian Fund. Everyone is invited to make heartfelt donations to the Diocese or to the local Parish. The donations will be directed to the families of innocent victims.
May Our Lord keep Armenia and Artsakh under His Divine gaze today and forever. Amen!
Bishop Abgar Hovakimyan, Primate
