Prelacy Churches to Offer Prayers for Syria
LA CRESCENTA—By a decree by Western Prelate Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian on Sunday, August 12 during Divine Liturgy on the Feast of the Assumption of the Holy Mother of God, “Der Voghormya” prayers will be offered in all Prelacy Churches for the safety and tranquility of the Syrian people and nation.
In past weeks, the conflict in Syria has been escalating, especially in Aleppo and Damascus, causing a humanitarian and financial crisis for the Syrian people, including the large Armenian communities in both cities. In the coming days there will be relief efforts, of which we will keep our faithful informed.
All are invited to express their support to the Syrian people by joining us on Sunday to pray for Almighty God to safeguard the innocent people of Syria caught in the middle of this conflict, and for peace to prevail in the country.
