Central Executive Council of Cilician Catholicosate Holds Plenary Sessions

ANTELIAS–The Central Executive Council of the Cilician Catholicosate held religious–political–and joint religious-political plenary sessions February 14-19 in Antelias–Lebanon.

The main issues discussed during the religious meetings were theological-religious education–inter-church relations–"Tbrevank"–Kayianian Sisters Congregation–preparation of religious textbooks–the blessing of Muron–publication and distribution of the Bible–and the student association of the Armenian Apostolic Church.

The political meetings dealt with property and administrative issues–the Catholicosate’s structures such as "Trchnots Pooyn," the National Home for the Elderly and Blind–the National Sanatorium–the "Khacher Kalousdian" pedagogical center–and political work related to the Armenian Cause.

The Central Executive Council also held joint religious-political meetings. Cooperation between Echmiatzin and Antelias was discussed–along with the festivities planned for the 1700 anniversary of the adoption of Christianity by Armenia.

The religious and political sessions were chaired by the Catholicos.
